Our Vision for Health Care

Bread and Water for Africa® understands that preventative healthcare and basic medicines can do much to save lives of millions in sub-Saharan Africa. Access to healthcare facilities is critical for children and mothers particularly in remote regions of the continent to avoid needless death.

THE CHALLENGES

In sub-Saharan Africa, approximately 400 women die each day from easily preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth, according to the World Health Organization. The risk of maternal mortality is greatest for girls under 15 years old and complications from pregnancy and childbirth is the leading cause of death among adolescent girls in developing countries. Children in sub-Saharan Africa are 15 times more likely to die before the age of 5 than in developed countries. More than half of under-5 child deaths are due to diseases that preventable and treatable through simple, affordable interventions.
