Every 2 minutes a woman dies from preventable childbirth and pregnancy issues. Over 6 million children did not celebrate their fifth birthday last year, most from preventable and easily treated diseases. Nearly 3 million died in their first month of life. Majority of these deaths are attributed to developing countries where 99% of all maternal deaths occur and a child death is 29 times more likely to occur.
IHS concentrates on building innovative solutions that integrate reproductive, maternal, neonatal and child health programs to create the continuum of care required to save more lives. These integrated solutions create efficiencies, lower cost, reduce redundancies and organize large patient volumes to focus health care providers to better diagnose illnesses. This technology can be used across multiple settings including hospital based care, community outreach and medical center initiatives.
