Laerdal Global Health (LGH) is a not-for-profit company that develops durable, simple, culturally adaptable, affordable products and programs aimed at helping save lives of newborns and mothers in low-resource countries.
Every day, 800 mothers die giving birth. Every day, about 8 000 newborn babies die. The majority of these deaths are preventable. We believe we can help.
By 2015, our goal is to help save 250,000 more lives per year.
We will reach our goals by:
- Helping train and equip more than 1 million birth attendants
- Introducing 12 - 15 disruptive innovative solutions that are durable, simple, culturally adaptable, and affordable
- Catalyzing innovative partnerships and alliances
