Too many women still die in the process of giving new life, yet most of these deaths could be prevented by improving access to health centers and better-trained, qualified and more numerous staff, especially in rural areas.

The Sanofi Espoir Foundation supports in-the-field programs to ensure better access to healthcare for every mother and newborn child, with the aim of fighting more effectively against maternal and neonatal mortality.

Twelve programs are currently underway: eight in Africa, three in Asia and one in Latin America involving many local and international partners: healthcare players, international organizations, local NGOs, corporate foundations and Ministries of Health.
