AIO travelled to India with The 4th President of Tanzania, Dr. Jakaya Kikwete on a maternal and newborn health mission. The objective was simple: to watch and learn how the State of Rajasthan has taken hold of a dire situation and turned it on its head to prevent unnecessary maternal and newborn deaths.

Looking for successful interventions in low resource settings to bring back to Tanzania and the continent of Africa at large, President Kikwete learned about an initiative in India that was increasing the number of pregnant women giving birth in health facilities, increasing staff moral and applying simple solutions to achieve quality healthcare services. All of which are matters of concern in Tanzania that are resulting in high maternal and newborn mortalities.
