Last week we partnered with the Liya Kebede Foundation, a nonprofit foundation that supports safe motherhood initiatives, on an Instagram takeover to discuss maternal health in India. I was delighted to share photos from Delhi where I saw Save the Children’s maternal health work in one of Delhi’s slums, Okhla.
Below see the photos and facts about maternal health in India.
This week we're visiting #India with #socialgoodmoms @jenniferjames_ India has come a long way for its #mothers. While it, along with Nigeria, still accounts for 1/3rd of global maternal deaths, it has significantly reduced mortality since 1990. One way it is saving more moms is through the work of ASHA #healthworkers -like these women- who help expectant moms receive antenatal care across the country. 📷@jenniferjames_
