Saving Mothers and Children in Bangladesh

Save the Children is providing life-saving healthcare to mothers and newborns in remote areas of Bangladesh where families live in poverty and lack access to essential services. Through community health workers and grassroots clinics, projects are addressing the leading causes of child mortality by providing antibiotics to treat pneumonia and newborn sepsis, rehydration salts for diarrhea and “clean delivery kits” containing basic items which help families make home-births safer for mothers and newborns. These items are low cost but, for families living in poverty, can mean the difference between life and death.

Please see below for pictures of our program in Bangladesh and a case study detailing Save the Children's efforts to help fight malnutrition.
