HealthProm

HealthProm focuses on maternal and child health and social care. We work with partners in Europe and Asia to promote safe childbirth, keep families together and prevent child institutionalisation.

Founded 1984

  • Mission statement

    Established in 1984, HealthProm began as a USSR-UK Medical Exchange Programme set up by doctors and allied professionals to promote health education through tours, conferences and exchange visits.

    HealthProm has since extended from working exclusively in health care to include social care of children and works in close partnership with local organisations.

    The key principles guiding our activities are capacity-building, evidence-based practice and partnership work. We do not provide services directly but aim to build the capacity of our partners, mostly through in-service training and service development.

    HealthProm’s aim is to work with its overseas partners to achieve sustainable, culturally appropriate dissemination of best practices in health and social care to improve the health of women and children in Eastern Europe and Asia.

    We focus on prevention through safe motherhood and early intervention for improved child social care and development.

    Safe childbirth is only the starting point in reducing health risks to mother and child. Through capacity building with local partners on safe childbirth and newborn care HealthProm aims to reduce maternal and infant mortality and disability.

    We support parents to care for their children, especially children with disabilities. We reduce institutionalisation of babies and small children through a focus on reducing poverty, empowering families, strengthening partnerships and advocating for rights.
