Prevention keeps mums and babies healthy from conception to first birthday

Support now starts well before a baby's due date, and continues until their first birthday.

 

Thanks to the Government of Odisha's commitment and support from the UK, mums-to-be and new mums can now get advice and support from day one in every village.

 

Community health worker, Rebati, gives polio and other life saving vaccinations to babies like Adilya for at least the first year of their lives.

 

Background

 

Britain is working with the Government of Odisha, one of India's poorest states, and UNICEF to save the lives of thousands of mums and babies.
