We need to improve quality of care to improve maternal and newborn health outcomes. In Kenya, births in health facilities have increased from 40% to over 60% in the last 5 years, yet maternal and newborn outcomes are not improving.
DESIGN BETTER MODELS
We test better approaches in our own facility and in partner public hospitals
ADAPT & VALIDATE
We work with public hospitals to integrate solutions into standard of care
We work with government health systems to scale low-cost and high impact approaches that improve the lives of mothers and babies
We are deploying innovative solutions in over 60 hospitals in 4 Kenyan counties.
Our SMS-based tools are driving a 1.6x increase in postpartum family planning uptake. Nurses in government facilities have a 50% sustained improvement in newborn resuscitation skills.
Our maternity hospital remains a gold-standard for delivering high-quality, low cost care, with 60% fewer complications compared to nearby facilities.
