Welcome to Preventive Healthcare Initiative

Our work is aligned towards achieving an equitable world, where the rights to good health for women and children are actualized and preventable deaths are eliminated.
We work with women and children in rural communities and urban slums in South-South Nigeria to help reduce preventable maternal and child mortality.
We empower women with knowledge, skills and tools to improve their reproductive health and wellbeing including the health and survival of their children.

Safe motherhood and child survival

This is designed to ensure make pregnancy safer and ensure that the pregnant woman is healthy and her child is given a healthy start in life.

Nigeria is the second largest contributor to the maternal and under–five mortality rate in the world (WHO/UNICEF)

SAFE MOTHERHOOD AND CHILD SURVIVAL PROJECT

For every woman who dies at least 20 more suffer long term disabilities
Similarly, an estimated 2,300 children under-the age of five years die every day and 25 % are new-born.

Every single day, about 145 Nigerian women of child bearing age die as a result of pregnancy and childbirth related causes.

The tragedy however, is that majority of these deaths are preventable.
