Challenge

Such state of poverty and extreme poverty in which many women live is related to the multiple barriers they face to access quality medical care during pregnancy, and the initial first months of the baby's life, as well family planning methods, which which is a human right.

Solution

This project seeks to reduce the odds of maternal and infancy death, enabling women to have safe pregnancies, where they receive all necessary medical consultations and lab tests, since the very moment they become aware of their pregnancy, as well as the newborn's initial consultations, up to their first 3 months. In addition, the project includes the placement of a long-term contraceptive that gives women the opportunity to have autonomy within family planning.

Long-Term Impact

This project will provide comprehensive medical care to 35 women and their babies, reducing the chances of complications during pregnancy and childbirth, providing opportunities for timely diagnosis and treatment, and facilitating access to family planning methods.
