Maternal and child mortality is one of India’s biggest health problems. Almost a million children below age-five die each year. More than 25,000 mothers die each year due to pregnancy-related complications. One in three children below age-five is malnourished. Much of this tragedy is preventable, and there are simple proven solutions. The challenge is delivering these on a large scale. This is the essence of Antara Foundation’s (TAF) vision – helping every mother and every child access a healthy start to life.
Antara International was born in 2020, as a US 501(c)(3) non-profit to support the work of its partner entity, TAF, a non-profit registered in India. Antara International aims to raise awareness and advocate for the grim maternal, child health and nutrition situation in India. The organization also helps mobilize funds to support TAF’s public health programs running across districts in rural India.
TAF works through a range of solutions that strengthen the rural health system (e.g., enable data-use among frontline health workers, enhance labor rooms, improve skills of delivery nurses) and increase demand for health services (e.g., mobilize women’s groups to increase awareness among rural communities, create village-level change agents). The work is carried out in partnership with respective governments, and in close collaboration with the local communities to ensure sustainable impact at scale.
