One Heart World-Wide

One Heart World-Wide’s mission is to decrease maternal and neonatal mortality and morbidity in remote rural areas.

 

Program History:

Our life-saving skills programs were initially established in the late 1990’s in the Tibetan Autonomous Region. During our time in Tibet, One Heart World-Wide experienced a number of significant successes in collaboration with the Lhasa Prefecture Health Bureau and the Women’s Federation. Over the last ten years, we were able to decrease unattended home births from 85% to 20%, mostly by ensuring the presence of a skilled attendant at delivery.  In 2008, in the two counties where One Heart World-Wide was working, the Lhasa Prefecture Health Bureau reported no maternal deaths and newborn death rates dropped from 10% to 3% since the start of the One Heart World-Wide project.

Our Model:

Based on our experience, One Heart World-Wide developed an effective, replicable and sustainable model to reduce preventable deaths related to pregnancy and delivery among vulnerable rural populations. Simply put, we work with local communities and local health providers to develop a culturally appropriate Network of Safety around mothers and infants, by raising awareness, teaching good practices, and distributing essential supplies to ensure that mothers and infants survive delivery and the first months of life. The Network of Safety is innovative in that it is tailored to the local cultural context, that it puts the mother first and that our interventions are aimed simultaneously at several different levels to ensure appropriate continuity of care for the mothers and infants.

Our Programs:

We are currently focusing our efforts on maternal and neonatal mortality and morbidity in Nepal. Since beginning our work in two districts in western Nepal, we have seen significant results. In the Baglung district, both maternal and newborn mortality have decreased by over 80% since 2009. In our second district, Dolpa, where we have been working since 2011, we have seen a decrease in maternal mortality of nearly 40% and newborn mortality has dropped by more than 64%. This year we will begin program implementation in a third district, Dhading.
