Armman

India

Every eight minutes a woman dies in childbirth in India. For every maternal death in India, 20 more women suffer from lifelong health impairments that result from complications during their pregnancies. The majority of these deaths are among women in the 15-29 age group, at the prime of their reproductive lives.

Armman (Advancing Reduction in Mortality and Morbidity of Mothers, Children and Neonates) delivers innovative and targeted solutions to safeguard the lives of pregnant women as well as their infants through the most high-risk times.

Armman aims to identify and address systemic gaps in both health services delivery and community health care seeking practices by adopting a multi sectoral evidence based ‘community needs assessment’ approach that has women and their families at the heart of everything they do. Their interventions have won numerous global awards.
