Challenge

With the COVID-19 pandemic, access to maternal health and reproductive services in Ghana has been challenging for expectant mothers from low-income households. African Health Now and the Madina Polyclinic, through the Pregnancy School Program Initiative, will support at least 200 expecting mothers to access these services to support a healthy pregnancy and delivery through health education and improve engagement in maternal and reproductive health services through referral and linkage services.

Solution

Expectant mothers will receive education on pregnancy and fetal development, breastfeeding, healthy nutrition for mother and infant, contraceptive use, and resources on COVID-19 and pregnancy. Upon the program's completion, they will receive AHN's Maternity Go-Box that includes supplies for newborns to support the health of the new mom and baby in their first few weeks. By having this knowledge and resources, expectant mothers will make informed decisions to protect and the health of the baby.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate 200 expectant mothers, working toward decreasing maternal and infant mortality in Ghana, increasing survival and promotion of health and wellbeing of expecting mothers and their infants. Educated expectant mothers will support healthy early child development, and as a result, aiding the support of a healthier and stronger community.
