Health Begins with Her

In sub-Saharan Africa, pregnancy and childbirth is one of the biggest threats to women and girls’ lives; two thirds of all global maternal deaths are women and girls from this region [WHO data 2019]. 

Access to support from a trained midwife can change this.

Our Christmas Challenge campaign ‘Health Begins with Heraims to raise support for our work to train midwives so that mothers are supported to give birth safely and their babies have the best start in life.

From midday on #GivingTuesday 29th November until 6th December 2022, every donation to the campaign will be doubled by our generous match-funders to support our work to remove the barriers that people face in accessing high-quality health care.

Will you help Amref train more midwives to ensure women and their babies are supported, before, during, and after birth?

One donation, twice the impact.
