In June 2023, our Maternal and Newborn Health Fund was established to provide prenatal and newborn assistance to vulnerable, first-time expectant mothers in Armenia. SOAR works with the Community Development and Social Childcare Center in Gyumri to identify the most suitable candidates. We support key elements of quality care during pregnancy, including birth preparedness and complication readiness, and counsel expectant mothers on pregnancy danger signs. Physicians and social workers ensure that mothers receive quality care during childbirth, regular post-delivery medical attention, and trainings that facilitate better motherhood skills. To incentivize our target population, we have established programmatic enrichments to address the social and structural barriers to patient compliance.
