Maternal, newborn and child health
Tdh’s vision is to significantly and substantially contribute to the reduction of disease and mortality in children under five and their mothers. With innovative approaches and in collaboration with local actors, we improve the quality of health services in the remotest and poorest areas of the world. A specific focus is given to health services around birth, when most deaths take place.
What we do in maternal, newborn and child health

IeDA - A digital solution to save childrens' lives
IeDA strengthens primary health care in rural areas in West Africa through innovation: a mobile application on digital tablets improves children’s medical treatment thanks to a better diagnosis.
Through the Tdh’s SIMESON project (Simulation of Essential Skills in Obstetrical and Neonatal care), we train midwifes and health workers in rural areas in Africa and Asia to make sustainable improvements to the quality of care provided at birth.
Fighting malnutrition in India
One of Terre des hommes’ main objectives in India is to improve health and nutrition among children (particularly under the age of 5), pregnant women and nursing mothers.
“Technology holds incredible promise for health to address the issues of child deaths.”
