Maternal and child health

A world where all children

are healthy

When it comes to maternal and child health, World Vision is committed to health and nutrition programmes, and delivering good quality basic healthcare.
We believe these are key to breaking the cycle of poverty we see among new mothers and their babies. 

 

 

An unacceptable statistic

Almost 8,000 women and their newborn babies die every day in developing countries, the vast majority of the time from preventable causes. We have a dedicated programme (AIM) to help tackle this unacceptable statistic, and we are happy to say over the last few years there has been improvements in survival rates.

We begin by working with the Ministry of Health in each country to train Community Health Workers who support pregnant women and their babies throughout their pregnancy and for the first two years of their child's life. We equip the health workers with innovative technology that helps them link a pregnant mother with a local clinic to support her during her pregnancy, and we bring communities together to help them assess their own needs, and support them as they advocate for themselves.
