Helping children and mothers to improve their health is central to ending senseless, cruel deaths. Suffering and disability from chronic undernourishment can be prevented through community-based health promotion, education, and nutrition programs. World Renew’s Maternal & Child Health Program is an important part of the community development work in every country where we have a presence, with the exception of Niger and Senegal.
- trains volunteer health workers and birth attendants in ante-natal care, safe delivery, HIV transmission, referral to a clinic or hospital, and post-partum and newborn care.
- trains community leaders to set up savings funds that can be used to help transport women with complicated deliveries to clinics, cover medical costs, and help offset other crises.
- teaches health volunteers to counsel new mothers about nutrition, breastfeeding, hygiene, family planning, immunizations, and disease prevention, and addresses harmful traditional practices.
- works with health facilities to establish routine community participation in health service planning and works with community groups to advocate for policies that benefit the poor. Educates community members through public health fairs, dramatizations, and “Celebration of Health” days. Monitors the health of newborns and young children through age five with monthly growth monitoring, ongoing nutrition counseling, kitchen gardens, and treating malnutrition.
- works with communities to improve the health of children and their mothers can have a profound impact on the future—both in the child’s ability to grow, learn, and rise out of poverty as well as in helping to shape a society’s long-term health, stability, and prosperity.
