The UK Aid Match appeal funds were used to improve maternal and new-born health for vulnerable women and babies by increasing demand for, access to, and uptake of health services in Isiolo County, Kenya and Karonga District Malawi.
What we achieved

- Ensuring access to health services and newborn care essentials.
- Encouraging a behaviour change in men.
- Challenging harmful practices, such as early marriage.
