Our Mission

The mission of One Heart Worldwide is to save the lives and promote the well-being of mothers and their newborns in underserved areas of rural Nepal and beyond. They achieve this through locally-led health system strengthening to provide equitable access to quality care for all mothers and newborns.

The Need

Mothers and newborns living in remote areas of Nepal are more likely to die during pregnancy or childbirth than in urban settings. Barriers to quality care are shortages of well-trained medical providers, health structures in need of medical equipment and repair, and a lack of emergency transport.
