Access to Primary Health Care

In the DRC, about 22,000 women die from complications in pregnancy and childbirth each year. We’re working to change this. As part of a consortium led by IMA World Health, we’re partnering with the government to deliver the services people need, so they can transform their lives.

Project Date: 2014 - present
Funder: Department for International Development

What We Do

  • Strengthen health centers, satellite clinics, and community health workers so more people in more places have access to the contraceptive information and services they need
  • Stop preventable maternal deaths by making sure women can access high-quality, respectful maternal care at every stage—before, during, and after pregnancy
  • Mobilize communities to transform harmful gender norms that make young women vulnerable to sexual and gender-based violence
  • In collaboration with the government’s National Program of Adolescent Health, train health providers to deliver the services young people need and deserve
  • Provide technical assistance to local partners so they can deliver higher quality services, make sure supplies are always available, and continue to have an impact long after we’re gone
