Welcome to Women & Children First
Women and Children First’s Vision is an equitable world where all women and children have good health. Our mission is to improve maternal, new-born and child health in poor and marginalised communities in developing countries.
This contribution to sustainable development is achieved by working with partners to raise awareness of maternal, newborn and child health issues. We mobilise communities, healthcare providers, funders and influencers to find solutions which empower women to exercise their health rights.

This is a great endorsement for the women's groups that we run with our partners in Africa and Asia. Read more.
