One Heart Worldwide

One Heart Worldwide (OHW) is a 501(c)(3) registered non-profit organization with more than 20 years of experience implementing maternal and neonatal health programs in some of the most remote areas of the world. Our mission  is to end all preventable deaths related to pregnancy and childbirth worldwide. Our vision  is to improve access to, and utilization of quality healthcare services to reduce the risk of maternal and neonatal mortality in remote rural areas where mothers and their newborns are most vulnerable. Our theory of change is based on direct partnership with local authorities and communities to create a continuum of care that will increase access to safe delivery options and encourage the adoption of healthy, culturally appropriate behaviors. What we strive for is lofty, incredibly difficult, and yet very simple: we believe all women and newborns should receive the quality healthcare services they deserve during pregnancy and childbirth, anytime and anyplace.

Maternal and perinatal mortality are key indicators for health and development. As such, OHW specializes in improving the access to, and the delivery of essential healthcare services in regions where the need is the greatest. We work in remote areas with the lowest human development indexes, where other organizations rarely operate. Pregnant women in these high-risk regions often have little to no access to appropriate medical care. In these areas, geographical and socio-cultural barriers, limited personal resources, lack of information, and inadequate healthcare services often prevent pregnant women from receiving the essential care they need to have a safe pregnancy and childbirth. OHW addresses these barriers by improving access to healthcare services in the world’s hardest to reach places. We deliver results and drive systemic change, saving lives now and in the future.
