Challenge

Consider the dire reality in Pakistan with regards to maternal and infant health: 1) A 2018 UNICEF report revealed that Pakistan has the highest Infant Mortality Rate in the world - newborns here face a one in 22 chance of dying within a month of birth. 2) Pakistan has a Maternal Mortality Rate of 127/100,000 which is 28 percent of the global total - every 37 minutes, one woman dies giving birth (14,000 woman every year). 80% of these infant deaths and 33% of maternal deaths are preventable!

Solution

HOPE USA has been at the forefront of the battle against maternal and infant mortality in Pakistan since 1998 - we operate a network of four hospitals which treat over 500,000 poor patients yearly - 70 percent of those patients are women. Altogether, 30,000 women are given prenatal care per year at our hospitals. Each year, our hospitals welcome 7,000 newborns via normal birth and 8,500 newborns via cesarean birth. Approximately 3,000 infants are given neonatal treatment.

Long-Term Impact

By establishing four hospitals in very poor communities which previously lacked medical facilities, HOPE USA has taken concrete steps towards reducing Pakistan's Maternal Mortality Rate and Infant Mortality Rate. Over the course of 23 years, we have built a level of trust within the communities in which we operate which has enabled us to introduce education and vocational training into our overall poverty alleviation strategies. Our goal is to end poverty in Pakistan.
