"One Man Can": Working with Men and Boys to Prevent Gender-Based Violence and Promote Gender Equality

The OMC campaign’s major goal is to support men to advocate for gender equality, including taking active stands against domestic and sexual violence, and to promote and sustain change in their personal lives that protect them and their partners from HIV and AIDS and that help change the gender norms driving the rapid spread of HIV.

Changing people,s attitude towards bride price and stop violence against women

Bride price in Uganda is one of the underlying causes of violence against women. since women are paid for then they are considered properties just like any other. even the process of paying the bride price, where bargaining is made.so from the begining, men who finally marry these women dont respect them because they think their parents sold women to them. so this project is aimed at changing people's attitudes, especially parents and men to either stop the bride price or change the whole process where only appreciations are given.

Nipple shield to prevent HIV transmission

The HIV nipple shield is being designed for use during breastfeeding to instantaneously inactivate the HIV in breastmilk while an infant nurses. 30-35% of HIV transmission from mother to child occurs during breastfeeding. The invention is a breast milk ‘filter’ formed into a textile disk impregnated with sodium dodecyl sulfate & incorporated in a modified nipple shield. With this device a mother can protect her infant from getting infected with HIV without the difficulty of expressing & treating her milk and without the worry of social stigmas.

Our organization works in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, one of the poorest states in India. The area is predominantly rural and has for centuries been plagued by abject poverty. High birth rates (5-8 children per household) and high infant mortality rates are the norm. There's a severe lack of basic knowledge of maternal health.

Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission of HIV (PMTCT) Research- based Project

Pure Love Expressed Health Care International works to provide HIV positive mothers with alternative feeding options such as donated pasteurized breast milk from healthy lactating mothers. To accomplish our goal, we will create Breast Milk Banks and Breast Milk Donation Centers within established healthcare systems in Kenya. We will provide mothers with natural milk at no cost to them, giving them a cheaper and safer infant feeding method to breastfeeding.

primary maternal health care

Primary martenal health care is an innovated project portrayed as an after thought, which should be run by charities or NGOs out of makeshift premises with concerned volunteers struggling to provide rudimentary care.

The project primary matrnal care should have the potential to deliver the best health outcomes to the largest number of poor women in the rural at the lowest cost. as in my country,with poor infrustructure, women still trek for more than 60km to get to a hospital.
