Commitment to Action

Healthy Pregnancies, Healthy Mothers, Healthy Children

Commitment by

International Medical Corps

In 2015, International Medical Corps committed to provide the education, supplies, resources and health-related investments to help 125,000 women have healthier pregnancies. This initial two year investment in healthy pregnancies will be the launching pad for reaching the eventual goal of one million healthier pregnancies over the next five years. In partnership with Heidi Murkoff, advocate and bestselling author of “What to Expect When Expecting,” and the What to Expect Foundation, this commitment will build the capacity of Ministries of Health, community health workers, adolescents, parents, and caregivers to ensure healthier pregnancies. First launching in South Sudan and Afghanistan, this project will build a cadre of trained midwives, equip facilities with necessary medical supplies, and provide health outreach and education to prepare communities for healthy pregnancies and deliveries.
