Women And Children First (UK)
Women and Children First (UK) works to improve maternal and newborn health in some of the poorest communities.
All over the world families celebrate pregnancy and look forward to the birth of a new baby with excitement and great hope for the childs future. But for millions of women in poor countries, such happiness is overshadowed by fear. More than 98% of maternal and newborn deaths take place in the poorest countries, but the majority of these deaths are preventable.
Our unique way of working with people in their own communities dramatically improves outcomes for both mothers and babies in even the remotest villages.
