Implementation

Maternal and neonatal health is a major public health issue in Djibouti. In its “National Action Plan to Fight Maternal Mortality”, the country set key targets to reduce the maternal mortality rate to 90/100,000 and the neonatal mortality rate to 25/1,000 by 2020. This project aims to reduce maternal and child morbidity and mortality by improving access to quality maternal, child and neonatal healthcare services and enhance service utilization in Djibouti. The project entails providing the necessary medical equipment, as well as capacity building of health personnel and general public through training and social mobilization.

Impact Facts & Figures

Enabling people to lead better lives

We believe the most effective way to create an impact is to empower countries to do so themselves. We help break down the barriers that prevent individuals, organizations and governments in the lowest income countries from obtaining the resources they need to accomplish this goal.
