Overview

Over the last two decades, maternal deaths have decreased by nearly 50% worldwide. Still, every day, 800 women die from pregnancy- or childbirth-related complications. Almost all of these deaths—99%—occur in developing countries. And for every woman who dies in childbirth, another 20 to 50 survive but suffer devastating injuries, such as obstetric fistula.

EngenderHealth’s woman-centered approach to maternal health addresses women’s sexual and reproductive health needs throughout their lives, including adolescence. Ensuring the availability of quality services helps pave the path for appropriate, specialized care during pregnancy, labor, and delivery. Still, for many women, pregnancy marks their first contact with the health care system, which provides an unmatched opportunity not only to help make pregnancy and delivery safe for both mother and child, but also to address broader aspects of women’s health, including family planning, HIV, and other sexually transmitted infections (STI).

EngenderHealth’s programs ensure that health facilities are equipped with supplies and well-trained staff to provide high-quality services forSafe pregnancy

In addition, we advocate for policy changes globally and locally to make motherhood safer, such as increased availability of a lifesaving drug to treat pre-eclampsia and eclampsia. EngenderHealth currently is involved with maternal and child health activities in countries throughout Africa and South Asia.
