The need for free access to healthcare for pregnant women, young mothers and newborns was covered by the Mother & Child programme, exceeding every expectation and objective set when it began in 2016.

In 2017, through this programme that has been implemented for more than one and a half years, Médecins du Monde were able to care for many more women and children than initially anticipated, thus easing the difficulties of motherhood for thousands of women.

In addition to the necessary medical care, we provided baby kits and practical support to mothers-victims of violence, through family planning programmes and in the hope that we will be able to provide even more in the future, such as accommodation and safe shelter.
