What We Do
Thousands of women die unnecesarily through pregnancy and childbirth. Many more suffer from malnutrition and serious illness. ICROSS implements women's health and safe motherhood programmes in hundreds of villages in Kenya. Safe motherhood advances and lessons have been shared with other programmes in 12 African countries and the Philippines over the past 18 months. With your help hundreds of mothers could have the right to choose through appropriate reproductive health care have safe pregnancies with proper nutrition and have qualified home delivery through trained birth attendants.
In 2004 ICROSS trained 180 midwives. In 2005 we are training a further 340.
