We work to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality by at least 50% in the most remote, rural areas of the world.
One Heart focuses its attention in areas where other organizations rarely operate due to logistic or environmental difficulties. In these low-resources settings, the burden of preventable deaths in women and newborn infants is unacceptably high and urgently calls for an intervention. While we focus on the entire family unit, our primary target populations are pregnant women and their newborn infants.
Our vision is to implement a simple, effective, replicable and sustainable model called the Network of Safety.
Based on over ten years of experience in Tibet, OHW developed the Network of Safety model to reduce preventable deaths related to pregnancy and childbirth in remote, rural areas of the world. The Network of Safety improves the health and well-being of vulnerable pregnant women and newborns that may not otherwise have access to medical or public health services due to socio-cultural barriers, limited personal resources, or living remotely in geographically challenging environments.
