The Problem

  • Properly staffed and well managed non-profit hospitals & clinics in sub-Saharan Africa often lack basic medical equipment (e.g.; a radiant warmer, incubator) - severely limiting their ability to improve health outcomes
  • They are often unaware of how to procure quality medical equipment. They have limited or no funds to procure the needed equipment and they have no biomedical support to install, train or develop a biomedical program (i.e.; to sustain the equipment)
  • Medical staff needs training in neonatal & delivery protocols, general clinical training and standard operating procedures
  • Failure by governments and Ministries of Health to establish functional community health systems require specific interventions and funding (Gaps Grants) to improve health outcomes

“Each year, 2.9 million newborns needlessly die within their first month and an additional 2.6 million are stillborn.  The main causes, which are preventable and treatable, are complications due to prematurity, complications during delivery, and infection.”
