MSD for Mothers is MSD’s $500 million initiative to help create a world where no woman has to die while giving life. For nearly a decade, the initiative has focused its efforts on generating fresh thinking and catalyzing new approaches to help end the longstanding challenge of maternal mortality.
Globally, every two minutes, a woman dies from complications related to pregnancy and childbirth, however, most of these deaths are preventable when women have access to modern contraception and quality maternal health care before, during and after childbirth. MSD for Mothers takes a holistic approach to addressing the community factors and inequalities that impact maternal health, leveraging the private sector for our shared public good to help improve maternal health and help end preventable maternal deaths. By focusing energy where the need is greatest, MSD for Mothers is making progress in having an impact on women’s lives and, at the same time, strengthening capacity for sustained impact through mixed health systems on health care delivery today and tomorrow.
MSD for Mothers is an initiative of Merck & Co., Inc., Kenilworth, NJ, U.S.A..
