Sub-Saharan Africa accounts for only 20% of the world's births but 45% of under-five deaths. Maternal mortality is also high, along with incidences of HIV and malaria. The Sub-Saharan, Sahelian countries of Mail, Niger, the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, and Chad have particularly alarming mother and infant mortality rates.
In the Islamic Republic of Mauritania and Chad, the programme seeks to eliminate new pediatric HIV infections and improve maternal and newborn health. In Mali, objectives are similar, being set to improving the health situations of women of child-bearing age and newborns.
Beneficiaries are women, newborns, and sexually active males.
