Grantee Spotlight: One Heart World-Wide


The Tarsadia Foundation is proud to partner with One Heart World-Wide and their innovative work in decreasing maternal and neonatal mortality and morbidity in remote rural areas.

Over the last ten years, One Heart World-Wide has been able to decrease unattended home births from 85% to 20%, mostly by ensuring the presence of a skilled attendant at delivery.  In 2008, in the two counties where One Heart World-Wide was working, the Lhasa Prefecture Health Bureau reported no maternal deaths and newborn death rates dropped from 10% to 3% since the start of the One Heart World-Wide project.

Their Model:
One Heart World-Wide developed an effective, replicable and sustainable model to reduce preventable deaths related to pregnancy and delivery among vulnerable rural populations. By working with local communities and local health providers to develop a culturally appropriate Network of Safety around mothers and infants, One Heart World-Wide has made spectacular improvements in the lives of mothers and children.
