Women and Children

Women and children are often the ones left most vulnerable in times of crisis and in communities that struggle with poverty. Global Ministries strives to improve access to quality prenatal, delivery and postnatal services for women, and to provide access to essential health care for children under 5 years old. Global Ministries works to improve the quality of health services provided in rural communities by building the capacity of local health professionals and equipping health facilities to deliver essential care, as well as to increase the demand for maternal and child health services through community education and engagement.
