Every year, nearly a million babies do not survive infancy due to complications from preterm birth. These are the most vulnerable population in the world, and globally only 64% of women receive antenatal (prenatal) care four or more times throughout their pregnancy.
The project ‘Improving Quality of Care in Obstetrics Care’ in Nepal funded by German Development, is implemented by a consortium comprised of m4h, Options (UK) and Evaplan.
Our team works in improving the outcome of deliveries and in preventing many pregnancy related deaths including improving prematurity and the concerns of preterm babies.
On this day, the World Health Organization (WHO) has released new Antenatal Care Recommendations to help improve care of pregnant women and reduce the risk of stillbirths and pregnancy complications.
Managment4health supports these guidelines as critical steps to saving the lives of women and children in Nepal.
The new recommendations call for a two-fold increase in the number of visits a pregnant woman has with her healthcare provider. These changes are an important step toward pregnant women getting the care they need and will help mothers and their babies have healthier pregnancy and birth experiences.
M4h and its team works to support these guidelines and their implementation and look forward to healthier pregnancies and births for mothers and their children.
