Maternal Health

Approximately 10 million children under the ages of 5 and 500,000 women die each year from preventable diseases and childbirth-related causes. Millions more suffer marginalised health conditions that leave them vulnerable to recurring diseases, and lock them into a poverty cycle.

This mortality and morbidity is a function of poverty, where the poorest 20% of the world’s population have a 10 times greater chance of dying before they reach the age of 14 than the richest 20%. The current maternal mortality ratio in Uganda is 336 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births. Infant mortality is 43 deaths per 1000 live births, with 42% of the mortality occurring during the neonatal period.

ELOI believes that good health will bring hope, dignity to men, women and children as a fundamental element of children’s well being. Our emphasis is thus on community-level work, and on partnering with the communities themselves, local government providers to assure that basic health needs are met. Our main objective is that communities and families are able to prevent poor health, and advocate for the services that they deserve.


Our objectives in Maternal Health Care focus on the reduction of maternal, perinatal, infant and childhood mortality and morbidity and the promotion of reproductive health and the physical and psychosocial development of the child and adolescent within the family.
