Healthy Mother/Healthy Child Project
USAID Support to Neonatal and Safe Motherhood Programs Saves Thousands of Lives

USAID supports the Government of Egypt's neonatal and safe motherhood programs by establishing essential obstetric care and neonatal services in public hospitals in nine Upper Egypt governorates. The Healthy Mother/Healthy Child project involves upgrading delivery and operating rooms, as well as neonatal units of general and district hospitals, where women are admitted with life threatening emergencies related to childbirth. These activities have saved the lives of thousands of Egyptian women and babies. To date, USAID has invested about $20 million to implement this program in 51 hospitals and 182 primary health care facilities.
