Strengthening antenatal care for indigenous women in Guatemala

Fact Sheet

Management Sciences for Health (MSH) is implementing a project to strengthen high-quality, culturally appropriate antenatal care (ANC) for indigenous women in the Quetzaltenango department of Guatemala. Launched in 2019, the project will work in partnership with national and departmental health authorities, local partners, and traditional midwives (comadronas), to introduce and implement a group ANC model where pregnant women can come together to share experiences, receive information from a health provider, form social bonds, and track the progress of their pregnancies. This project is funded by Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies.
