THE STORY:

Village Health Works is a grassroots nonprofit organization that provides quality, compassionate, dignified health care in rural Burundi, East Africa. The organization focuses first on treating illness through primary health care services, then uses its unmatched community engagement to expand that care with community development programs focused on sustainable agriculture, education, and gender-based violence prevention. VHW has set in motion a virtuous cycle that generates peace-building and reconciliation. 

Maternal Health in Burundi today (World Bank Data)

  • The maternal mortality ratio of 740 (i.e. 740 maternal deaths per 100 000 live births) compared to 510 in sub-Saharan Africa and 15 in developed countries
     
  • A woman faces a 1-in-22 lifetime risk of dying due to pregnancy or childbirth compared to a 1-in-38 risk in sub-Saharan Africa and a 1-in-4,000 risk in developed countries
     
  • 67 out of 1,000 Burundian babies die before they reach their first birthday compared to 64 in Sub-­Saharan Africa and 5 in developed countries 

 

Our goal is to build a center of excellence that will be a beacon of hope for Burundi and the central/east African region. Over the next three years, we plan to expand clinical capacity by constructing the Women’s Health Pavilion (WHP)—a state-of-the-art teaching hospital designed to meet the specific health needs of women and children. The WHP will provide safe delivery of babies, safe emergency obstetrical care, vital neonatal care, and the capacity to develop comprehensive surgical services. International clinical partners will train VHW providers and clinicians from across the country and region.
