Challenge

Several females living in rural areas loose their lives due to pregnancy related conditions, leaving behind a child with lesser chance of survival. Children without mother are less likely to get care, education, nutrition leading them to a continued cycle of poverty & poor health. Leading causes of maternal deaths are highly treatable if adequate care is available. But, this care is inaccessible due to large distances, poor infrastructure & inadequate no. of health workers in rural locations.

Solution

Project develops health franchisee in every village to educate the community. With the help of nurse she provides pregnancy related check-ups to every pregnant female & conducts monthly gynecologist camps to screen complicated pregnancies.

Long-Term Impact

The project will establish 25 health franchisee to educate a target population of 10,000 people on the need of maternal health care and will provide pregnancy related care to 4500 pregnant females, reducing the number of maternal and infant deaths
