Rotarian Vocational Alliance for Saving Mothers & Babies

Evidence-Based Template of Action 

&

Strategic Alliance

What is it? It is an alliance of Rotarians, Rotaractors (in Clubs, Districts, Fellowships and Action Groups) and Health care professionals and activists in action for the elimination of preventable maternal and child mortality.

 

Mission – Fast track action based on the Calmed template, accelerating individual country initiatives towards SDG 3 goals and Universal Health Coverage, in alignment with Country Quality of Care Network and Joint Working Team (WHO)

Stop Mothers Dying!

About 300,000 women and 3 million  babies worldwide die each year in pregnancy and childbirth – 90% in the deprived developing world, especially SE Asia and Africa.

Most of these deaths could be prevented through faster access to medical help, and improved local medical knowledge and practices.
