India Maternal Health Initiative
Jiv Daya Foundation has identified neonatal and maternal care as a significant area of need for intervention. In India, the combination of a growing population and a lack of crucial resources in labor and delivery wards has resulted in high neonatal and maternal mortality rates. Therefore, Jiv Daya Foundation desires to reduce the neonatal and maternal mortality rates by strengthening quality of and access to specialized hospital-based neonatal and maternal care.
The various components of the India Maternal Health Initiative are designed based on leading causes of maternal and neonatal mortality and target specific gaps in care. Clinical and non-clinical staff supported and trained by the Foundation help relieve manpower shortages, while consumable and sterile medical supplies promote hygienic conditions and lower the risk of infection. In addition, the Foundation has developed several technologies that allow for improved data collection and patient management. To address insufficient record keeping, the IndiaMOMs database captures patient treatment and outcomes and enables advanced data analysis. The Foundation has also built an Electronic Partograph System to facilitate the early detection of labor abnormalities and initiation of timely interventions, as unmanaged complications often result in preventable death.
Jiv Daya Foundation focuses its efforts on urban areas where hospitals report thousands of deliveries annually. Through the provision of trained staff, consumables, and technologies to high-volume, low-resource centers, Jiv Daya hopes to make a measurable impact on the state of neonatal and maternal care in India.
