Vision, Mission & Values

Women and Children First’s Vision is an equitable world where all women and children have good health.

Women and Children First’s 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.

Women and Children First’s Values are:

  • Southern partner-led approach 
  • Evidence-based programmes
  • Rights-based approach
  • Equity in partnerships
  • Equitable access to health information and services
  • Transparency and accountability
  • Value for money
  • Ethical funding
