Prematurity is one of the leading causes of newborn deaths. In Mali, 29% of neonatal deaths are due to babies born before 37 weeks of gestation.  Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC) is an intervention where the mother carries her baby skin-to-skin at the chest, with breastfeeding support and close monitoring by a health provider.  KMC gives a chance to premature babies or those born low birth weight to survive and thrive, especially in countries where access to specialized neonatal care services are still lacking.

Antenatal care can prevent, detect and manage complications affecting the health of the mother and child throughout a woman’s pregnancy.  Unfortunately, in Mali, this practice was rarely adopted in the intervention areas of the Harande Program.  This is why Harande has made the promotion of maternal, infant and neonatal health one of its priorities.  The combination of social behavior change communication and approaches has gradually led to positive change in target communities, such as the village of Sincarma.
