Globally, every two minutes, a woman dies during pregnancy or childbirth. Every 4.4 seconds a child dies.
Malawi has one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the world with 439 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births. Underfive mortality rate is at 41.9 per 1,000 live births.
70% of maternal deaths happen in Sub Saharan Africa
95% of maternal deaths occur in low resource settings
75% of maternal deaths are from severe bleeding, infections, high blood pressure, pregnancy complications, and unsafe abortion.
Majority of these deaths are largely preventable and treatable with access to high-quality and timely healthcare.
Enough evidence is available on the effectiveness of community-based primary health care in improving outcomes for mothers and children in low resource settings.
However, the challenge lies in reaching the most vulnerable communities, especially the rural populations.
There is widespread consensus that delivering effective primary health care (PHC) interventions through the continuum of care, starting from pregnancy to delivery and then to the newborn, infant, and the young child, is an integral component of health strategies.
