The health and well-being of women and children lies at the core of Project HOPE’s programs. Every day, according to the World Health Organization, 16,000 children under 5 years of age die from diseases, while 1,000 women die from the consequences of pregnancy and childbirth on a daily basis; yet most of these deaths are preventable. Project HOPE’s reproductive, maternal, neonatal and child health programs improve the quality of care and the continuum of care from facility to community. Our strategies strengthen the capacity of communities and the health workforce for both prevention and treatment. Our programs improve the systems for teaching mothers, families, and caregivers about reproductive health, prenatal care, how to keep infants and children healthy, and when to seek care at a health facility. Project HOPE has extensive global experience in reproductive, maternal, newborn and child (RMNCH) health in Asia, Africa, and the Central Asian Republics. We are currently working with both private and public health systems to strengthen Maternal and Newborn Care in several African countries, Latin America, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Eastern Europe. Our orphans and vulnerable children programs in Africa frequently include an economic strengthening component for women’s empowerment to increase resources for family health.
