Mother and child health
Our vision is to reduce substantially the burden of mortality for children under five years old and their mothers. We provide health services to mothers during pregnancy and birth to save children’s lives during this critical period. With the help of innovative approaches and in collaboration with local actors, we improve the quality of care.

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 of Mali 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.
As a mother, I am constantly wondering: where will this child be in five years' time? As a doctor, I am more concerned about the social consequences. It is this combination of emotions and pragmatism that makes Tdh capable of making a difference.
