Healthy development requires a
continuum of care.

A continuum of care means working with women and children from birth to adulthood in order to break the intergenerational cycle of poor health. Gender-based violence cuts across all stages along the continuum of care. We aim to ensure they have continuous access to and awareness of the health services they need to live a healthy and safe life.

Pregnancy

  • Enhancing public system response to maternal healthcare.
  • Improving coordination across public health facilities for high risk pregnancies.

Birth

  • Encouraging institutional deliveries through the public health system.
  • System strengthening to ensure immunizations and exclusive breastfeeding.

Childhood

  • Identifying, preventing and treating malnutrition.
  • Improving coordination across public health facilities for high risk pregnancies.

Adolescence

  • Educating adolescents on reproductive health and gender equity.
  • Creating a cadre of youth to become community change agents.

Adulthood

  • Empowering communities and partnering with public systems to respond to gender-based violence.
  • Providing mental health and legal services to women facing violence, and improved knowledge and access to planned parenthood.
