Is there any more painful and devastating suffering than the death of a child? How about when that death is also preventable and totally unnecessary?

In its twenty-year history, Medicines for Humanity has persistently and vigorously worked to increase its impact on alleviating human suffering by improving maternal and child health (MCH) services in underserved communities around the globe.  MFH has increased its impact by evolving from being a supplier of medicines to strengthening systems of clinic-based and community-based MCH care. MFH has also evolved to recognize the central importance in selecting the right partners - partners that are committed to the service area for the long haul, partners that share MFH’s commitment to the neediest of families, partners that are free from corruption, and partners dedicated to improving MCH services.
