Country issues

Madagascar is one of the poorest countries in the world with more than 78% of the population living below the poverty line. 2 million children under the age of 5 suffer from chronic malnutrition, making child malnutrition one of the greatest challenges facing Madagascar.

On the other hand, maternal and neonatal health care is very little developed in Madagascar. 6 out of 10 births take place at home and there are 353 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births and 20 newborn deaths per 1,000 live births.

Training education and health personnel to improve maternal and child health

We have two projects to protect Malagasy children and mothers :

  • In collaboration with the University Hospitals of Geneva and the Ambanja District Hospital, we train nursing staff in the respectful management of pregnant women and their newborn.
  • In schools, we train teachers in nutrition education to prevent malnutrition.
