Mothers, infants and children are dying unnecessarily every day in countries around the world. From decades of research and program implementation, we know where these deaths occur, how they occur, and, most importantly, what can be done to reduce them.
At FHI 360, our approach addresses the full range of maternal, newborn and child health needs and challenges, from preconception through the postpartum period; from birth through childhood; and from adolescence into adulthood. We understand and work with the complex, interrelated factors that enable a robust continuum of care for mothers, newborns and children.
Working together with governments, communities and health systems, we establish equitable, patient-centered care that saves — and improves — lives. We strengthen community- and facility-based services and increase the use of these services through demand-generation activities and improved referral mechanisms.
Our multidisciplinary research and programs help countries implement and scale proven and emerging high-impact interventions. Our research and programs demonstrate how interventions can be introduced or adapted to improve quality of care, equity, effectiveness, accountability and sustainability.
