Mission and Vision

Increasing access to safe delivery and family planning services within rural communities increases the opportunities for women to have positive outcomes for their pregnancies as well as to plan and achieve their desired family size. The Population Council (FRONTIERS program) supported the scale-up of a community-based model that enabled women to give birth safely at home or be referred to a hospital when attended by a self-employed skilled midwife living in the community. The Council identified an expanded package of safe motherhood services—including postpartum family planning—which is provided by the community midwives with minimal supervision and supply of commodities.
