Improving Birth Outcomes


Why Are Maternal, Infant and Child Health Important?

The risk of maternal and infant mortality and pregnancy-related complications can be reduced by increasing access to quality preconception care. In addition, healthy birth outcomes and early identification and treatment of health conditions among infants can prevent death or disability and enable children to reach their full potential.
