The programme, funded by UK Aid Match, works to improve infant and maternal mortality rates by caring for women during and after pregnancy and helping to protect babies during their first year of life.

Of the 695 babies supported, 95% of births were attended by a skilled birth attendant and 92% of babies were at normal birth weight – this is above the national average. 95% of mothers were also able to access post-natal care.
