Maternal & Child Health Care

Maternal health is the health of women during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. It encompasses the health
care dimensions of family planning, preconception, prenatal, and postnatal care in order to ensure a positive and
fulfilling experience in most cases and reduce maternal morbidity and mortality in other cases.

What are our Goals?

We focus our efforts on three key strategic priorities:

  • Improving women’s health before, during, and beyond pregnancy and across their life course;
  • Improving the quality and safety of maternity care; and
  • Improving systems of maternity care including both clinical and public health systems;
