It Takes a Village is our campaign to unite parents with a shared goal – to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.
Pregnant women and children are often the most vulnerable to serious health problems, but what happens when you live three days walk from the closest clinic? Or there simply aren’t enough trained health workers to support you through a difficult pregnancy?
Maternal health is a huge part of our work at Health Poverty Action. Not only do we support remote health facilities across Asia, Africa and Latin America, but we address the root causes of the problem – by tackling discrimination, by working alongside local government to improve infrastructure, and by providing training traditional birth attendants with the medical skills they need.
