We deliver results
There are currently 35 under-served districts in Nepal that need help in the area of maternal and neonatal health. This represents a combined population of 7.5 million people, and 200,000 pregnancies per year (Census Report 2011). Each year in Nepal, there are an average of 630,000 deliveries, many of which take place at home without a skilled provider present. Each year in Nepal, 1,500 women die in childbirth and more than 13,000 babies die within their first month of life. One Heart World-Wide is one of the few international organizations partnering with the Nepali government and local NGOs to cover these areas of desperate need.
We are currently implementing our model, the Network of Safety, in thirteen program sites, and we are planning to add two to four new sites each following year in order to take our model to scale and cover all 35 districts in need.
