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.
