Saving lives of mothers and newborns world-wide
Every 90 seconds a woman dies due to complications of pregnancy and childbirth, every 10 seconds a newborn dies during delivery, or within the first 28 days of birth.
Most of these deaths occur in low-resource settings without a Skilled Birth Attendant, and could have been prevented with simple interventions. Studies show that the greatest burden of maternal and perinatal mortality is clustered around the time of birth, with the majority of deaths occurring within the first 24 hours after delivery.
"With One Heart and many hands, we turn back the tragic tide of birth-related deaths, driving systemic change to save the lives of mothers and their newborns, now and into the future."
- Arlene Samen, Founder and CEO of One Heart World-Wide
Key to the success of our model, the Network of Safety, is the integration of existing governmental health infrastructure and priorities. One Heart World-Wide works in close collaboration with the government of Nepal, partnering with the Family and Child Health Divisions of the Ministry of Health.
