What We've Done
Impact Since 2006
The latest national maternal mortality rate for Malawi is 510 deaths/100,000 live births (2008). After a lot of hard work, we were able to open a hospital and maternity wing on April 1, 2006 to address the needs of the community.
Since it’s opening in 2006 (last data collection Dec. 1st, 2010):
Our Local Maternal Mortality Rate = 0.0%
Our Infant Death During Childbirth Rate = 0.0%
Clean healthy baby births: 1,200+
Women given prenatal care: 2,500+
Women given family planning care: 1,850
Children admitted and released: 646
Patient referrals to other clinics: 76
