The project aims to reduce maternal mortality rates by increasing access to quality health care during pregnancy and delivery in the Nyeri region in Central Province and the Migori region in Nyanza Province in Kenya. This will be accomplished in partnership with the Kimathi University College of Technology (KUCT) working with the Ministry of Medical Services. Medical employees are trained in updated obstetric techniques and requisite equipment installed. Community Health Units are being established at all dispensaries to spread key health messages throughout the two regions. This project is known by its acronym ‘MAISHA’, which means ‘life’ in Swahili.
