Communities where maternal and neonatal mortality rates are low and every mother and infant have the right to a healthy birth.
Our Guiding Principles:
- High-quality maternal and infant healthcare, including prenatal, delivery, postnatal, well baby, and reproductive health care, family planning, HIV/AIDS testing and treatment, and community health outreach; all provided with respect, available 24×7, accessible to all, culturally appropriate, no financial barriers, and with personal relationships to families in our zone of service.
- Indigenous management, with local staffing, and programs for professional development.
- Innovative and efficient use of technology, including electronic medical records, telemedicine through IM and internet, and specially designed assessment tools.
- Community empowerment, moving toward self-sufficiency by 2024, including population surveys, community health education, house calls, collaboration with community and government bodies, partnerships with other mission related agencies, and economic development programs to improve our families’ incomes and food security.
