Despite a considerable decrease over the past 10 years, maternal and child mortality remains a scourge around the world, particularly in Africa. In 2017, around 295,000 women died during pregnancy or childbirth. 66% of those cases were reported in sub-Saharan Africa.
We work in close collaboration with the Group’s subsidiaries in all the countries within our footprint and in partnership with local associations and NGOs. Pragmatism and effectiveness for the beneficiaries are what guide the choices of the projects to be supported.
