Why we invest
In too much of the world, maternal and newborn death rates are appallingly high, and there are simple ways to prevent them. One Heart Worldwide works with governments to create an efficient and systematic way to upgrade basic government birth centers, train providers well, and get women into prenatal care and safe delivery. In Baglung, a Nepalese district of 300,000 people, the maternal mortality rate dropped 90% in three years. One Heart is now poised to scale this success, with a viable plan to reach all the highest-need districts in Nepal by 2025.
