THE CHALLENGE WE'RE ADDRESSING
Over the last 10 years, Kenya’s government has made strides in advancing equity and access in maternal and infant health by providing free maternity care in government hospitals. 85% of the poorest women receive care in Kenya’s public hospitals. However, maternal and newborn mortality remains amongst the highest in the world, driven by a twin challenge impacting ~90% of all maternal deaths: delays in care seeking and gaps in the management of labor and delivery.
We support county governments to co-own and co-finance our solutions, as a pathway to long-term sustainability. Over the last seven years, Jacaranda has earnt increasing government recognition and buy-in by proving its solutions can deliver impact on government health priorities and by routinely sharing data that helps them do more with their resources.

We aim for broad scale in Kenya, but also recognize that every pregnancy journey is different, depending on where the mother is and the robustness of the systems that support her. Our research and data is helping us understand and adapt solutions based on specific contextual challenges impacting maternal and newborn health outcomes in different parts of Kenya.
