An estimated 289,000 pregnant women and mothers and 6.6 million children under 5 years old die each year.
ACCESS Health International works in low and middle income countries to improve maternal and child health. Our primary focus is on reducing infant, child, and maternal mortality. We identify successful programs in both rural and urban settings and work with care providers to understand and document best practices. We work with both public and private providers to help them to improve programs. We promote collaboration among institutions, policymakers, and payers of care to bring good practices to scale. ACCESS Health also works with providers to improve the quality of maternal and child care and to develop systems to monitor and audit compliance with methods designed to improve outcomes.

ACCESS Health India works directly with providers to identify, share, and scale hospital processes and procedures that lead to better outcomes for mothers and their children.

In 2012, more than twenty five million infants were born in India, and about eight hundred thousand died within the first month. In addition, India reported about fifty six thousand maternal deaths in 2010. Recent health reforms have increased access to facility based maternal and newborn care without significant improvement in outcomes for mothers and infants. To improve health outcomes, these facilities must also deliver high quality care.

ACCESS Health Philippines partners with the public and private sectors and local organizations to pilot and expand innovative initiatives in maternal and child health. Our projects support the efforts of the Philippine government to address challenges in access to healthcare services. The Philippines has struggled to reduce child mortality and improve maternal health. The unique geography of the Philippines makes it particularly difficult for people to access needed care. The government uses frontline health workers and local health centers as a primary strategy to bring healthcare to isolated and low income communities. ACCESS Health Philippines strengthens the capacity of community health workers and local health centers to deliver high quality care to mothers and children.
