Issues: Health, International

Location: 318 W. Millbrook Road Suite 105 Raleigh NC 27609 USA

Mission: Curamericas Global partners with underserved communities to make measurable and sustainable improvements in their health and well-being.
Results: In Bolivia, the Curamericas project reduced child mortality rates by an average of 62% in six years. After one year since construction was completed and the Maternity Center opened to serve families in Guatemala, 30% of all births in the community are taking place in its safe facilities. Nurses and midwives are trained to aid in safe deliveries and to appropriately respond in emergency situations. After only one year of work in Haiti, we have provided services to more than 10,000 women providing treatment and prevention services for HIV/AIDS. Our Nehnwaa Child Survival Project in Liberia records zero maternal deaths since our project began in 2008. In a country where the lifetime risk of death due to pregnancy is 400 times as high as the U.S., this is a terrific achievement by the local health teams.
Target demographics: Mothers and children under the age of five in countries with high maternal and child mortality rates; women of reproductive age in Haiti
Geographic areas served: Guatemala, Liberia, Haiti, Bolivia
