Mothers and their Newborns in Emergent Nations: The Health Care Puzzle
No one having a baby today—even in distant, rural parts of the world—should suffer
the risks that were much more widely seen a full century ago. Now we know more,
and we can do more.
This health care puzzle has multiple parts, and, in Kenya, 2020 MicroClinic Initiative
is working on many of them: Getting mothers to clinics. Offering incentives for
them to ask for help — before birth, at birth, and afterward. Finding the money
to afford care. Making the right medical supplies and practitioners available.
Encouraging support from families. Using available technology to create a system
that coordinates resources and tracks health outcomes everywhere.
Piecemeal approaches have been tried, but we believe in a comprehensive solution.
Please join us to make a life-changing difference for the new mothers of Africa,
and perhaps setting an example for other parts of our world.
