Mission of Village Health Partnership
The mission of Village Health Partnership is to prevent maternal and neonatal death during childbirth by building a workforce of nurses and midwives skilled in providing care in rural Ethiopia.
This project builds a work force of skilled nurse midwives to reduce rates of maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality and prevent gynecological complications.
Why We Love This Project
We love this project's focus on interventions to prevent maternal morbidity and mortality. Village Health Partnership (VHP) works to strengthen health care services, build capacity, and improve WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene), healthcare provider training, and patient care. VHP also works on the barriers to care, such as the decisions to access care, transportation to medical facilities, and the availability of timely care.
