One Heart World-Wide

No women should have to die giving birth. One Heart World-Wide (OHW)’s Network of Safety model reduces maternal and neonatal mortality in low-resource, remote settings. The systematic referral system provides mothers with appropriate levels of care by integrating local resources, collaborating with key local religious and political leaders, and respecting cultural norms and practices. One Heart World-Wide works with Medic Mobile in Nepal.

“My experience with my first birth inspires and motivates me to do my work the best way I can so that other women like me are saved.”

– Manju Maya Chepang was inspired to become a community health volunteer (CHV) after OHW and a CHV had helped her through a birth complication she had experienced during her first pregnancy
