Pre and post-natal Care for Poor Women

by Women's Action Against Climate Change Association
Pre and post-natal Care for Poor Women

Summary

Poor women here lack access to proper and timely pre and post-natal care resulting to very high mortality for them and for their infants. The lack of timely care is because of poverty and lack of resources. They cannot ask help from their neighbors and relatives because they are also equally poor like themselves.

Challenge

Poor pregnant women have difficulty going to the doctor for proper pre and post natal care. This is due to lack of money. They could not borrow from their neighbors and relatives because they are very poor too. This result to very high mortality for the baby and the mother which for a little amount could save them.

Solution

The money will be used to pay for proper medical pre and post natal care for pregnant women who are very poor to undergo this life-saving procedure. The foreseen expenses aside from the medical care will be for transportation, stay in the town where there is hospital and for milk and food once the medical attention is provided.

Long-Term Impact

Happiness and well-being of poor women and their infants as they have access to proper medical care before, during and after child birth. Improved community life too as residents are healthy and happy and able to contribute to the development of their community.
