Mother and Child Health
The well being of any community especially in developing countries is a function of the health and well being of the mother-and-child. Therefore, from its beginning, IHO has focused upon the improvement of health of mother-and-child. through vaccinations for children and mothers, screening during pregnancy, nutrition, family planning clinics and educational programs. Currently these programs include family planning and reproductive health services, and the training of new healthcare workers who can continue to carry these programs into new communities. Currently, MCH projects are in operation in several developing countries including the Indian Sub-continent. Many of our MCH projects integrate women’s empowerment techniques in order to give a better picture of health for women in Indian subcontinent and other countries in Asia and Africa.
