What are the health needs and challenges?

The health situation in the Arkhangai region of Mongolia is very precarious. The organization of care provision currently suffers from many quality and efficiency problems that have a disastrous impact on maternal and child health, particularly in the region of Arkhangai.

Description of partnership activities and how they address needs and challenges

The main objective of the project supported by the Sanofi Espoir Foundation is to improve the quality of care for the population of Arkhangai by boosting the skills of health workers in obstetrics and neonatal care, building networks among all associated stakeholders in maternal and child health in the region, and stepping up the organization of all hospitals involved in the maternal and child care value chain.

It therefore results in improving overall health protection for mothers and children.

This program forms part of the strategic health development plan in the Arkhangai region led by the Regional Directorate of Health.
