MissionJacaranda Health’s mission is to make pregnancy and childbirth safer for women and newborns by transforming maternal healthcare in East Africa.
What We DoJacaranda Health is a social venture that aims to transform maternity care in East Africa. We are combining business and clinical innovations to create a fully self-sustaining and scalable network of maternity hospitals that act as “implementation labs”, leveraging partnerships to build better systems for delivering high quality, affordable, respectful maternal healthcare, and disseminating these systems in the public and private sector.
Our maternity hospitals provide high-quality, respectful care to the women and newborns we serve. They also serve as global innovation labs where we pilot innovations in m-health, marketing, and clinical tools. Our nurse midwives are trained as maternal health leaders; and we are building a set of professional development tools to help nurses and midwives grow to be stronger leaders and stronger care providers for mothers and infants.
