Supporting an unprecedented partnership between public and private health systems, improving the quality of antenatal and emergency obstetric care, and expanding women’s access to postpartum contraception, our Matrika project is helping to save women’s lives.

“I did not want to get married at 14," says Nadjoari. "My parents pushed me into it. I could not refuse.” We believe every girl deserves a childhood. And so we began an innovative program in West Africa serving young women like Nadjoari.

Cecile believes every young person should receive information on sexual and reproductive health. In her hometown in Haiti, she's making it happen. She is a woman who dares! 

Pathfinder believes technology can improve the quality of health services and systems - and reach more people with essential health information. We currently have mHealth programs in eight countries.
