WE BELIEVE IN CHANGE

Cote d’Ivoire has one of the highest infant mortality rates in the world. In Braffoueby – a small, rural village located fifty miles northwest of the capital, the community faces chronic poverty and a crippling health care system resulting from years of civil war.

Qualified doctors and educated and skilled midwives in the region are few, and finding health care centers equipped with the basics like gloves, water, and electricity is an even greater challenge. Women lack preventive care and births are often un-attended resulting in an alarming rate of women and children dying in labor due to complications. HIV/AIDS, malaria, diarrhea and other diseases also dominate, creating unsafe and unsanitary conditions for women and children who have minimal access to the benefits of disease treatment and proper nutrition.

  • Funding to access life-saving preventive and obstetric care

  • Fight maternal and infant mortality
  • Educate and train the clinic’s dedicated midwives and nurses
  • Tackle preventive diseases like typhoid and diarrhea

ICMC’s proven impact is based on a foundation of working with local leaders, the Ministry of Health, and a network of local health clinics and NGOs. With a continued commitment to educating women about their health rights and implementing life-saving interventions, ICMC is devoted to helping The Patricia Nau Clinic thrive and support future generations.
