  • Title: About FCI
    Descriptive info: In 1986, the world was paying little attention to the hundreds of thousands of women dying in pregnancy and childbirth each year.. Family Care International was the first international organization dedicated to maternal health, founded out of a determination to remedy this neglect.. FCI has been working ever since collaboratively, innovatively, and effectively to make pregnancy and childbirth safer around the world.. As testament to the impact of our work, FCI was the 2008 recipient of the United Nations Population Award.. Our Work.. With field offices in five countries in Africa and Latin America, and activities and materials that span the world, FCI pursues a world where no woman suffers preventable injury or death.. from pregnancy or childbirth-related causes and in which all peopl.. e are able to enjoy their sexual and reproductive health and rights.. In the halls of power, FCI one of the world s leading voices for maternal and reproductive health fights for political commitment, stronger policies, and more funding for.. programs that save women s lives.. In remote villages, we work with local partners and communities to raise awareness, create innovative solutions and tools, and implement effective programs and services that im.. prove maternal and reproductive health outcomes in the communities where women are still dying every day.. And always, our work is designed to empower individuals and strengthen and support civil society.. These two approaches building capacity locally while advocating globally inform each other, translating big picture thinking into.. on-the-ground reality, and vice versa.. We build smart partnerships with.. the people who really know and understand local conditions and cultures, and work together to provide women.. with the services that they.. desperately need.. We produce high-quality, culturally-appropriate advocacy and education materials that reinforce our programs, assist our partners, and empower and inform communities and individuals.. And when the discussions are serious and the stakes are high, FCI is there at the table, bringing political savvy, technical expertise, and years of expe.. rience to the search for practical and principled solutions.. Integral to our work, at all levels, is an insistence that effective programs and persuasive advocacy must both be built on a foundation of hard evidence.. If FCI says it, according to one of our partners,  ...   undertook a comprehensive review of our organizational mission and strategy.. After intensive discussions involving FCI staff in six countries on three continents, our Board, and a range of colleagues, donors, and peers, we refined and agreed on an.. institutional strategic framework.. to guide our work in the crucial period from 2012 through 2015, the deadline year for achieving the Millennium Development Goals.. This framework is founded on FCI s unique mix of institutional experience, relationships, and skills; on the niche that we have carved out through more than two decades of work at the global and country levels; and on an assessment of what needs to be done in order to achieve our vision.. FCI envisions a world where no woman suffers preventable pregnancy-related injury or death, where childbirth is safe for mothers and their babies, and where all people are able to enjoy their sexual and reproductive health and rights.. FCI seeks to improve the health and well-being of women, girls, and newborns in the developing world by working to:.. Make pregnancy and childbirth safer.. Ensure universal access to reproductive health care and information.. Empower women, young people, and communities.. FCI works to improve reproductive, maternal, and newborn health by:.. Advocating.. for.. increased financial and policy commitments.. , and for fulfillment of those commitments.. Building.. communities capacity to advocate.. for equitable access to health services and information.. Designing, implementing, and monitoring.. evidence-based programs.. , in collaboration with local partners.. Educating and empowering.. individuals and.. communities.. to use available services and.. adopt healthier behaviors.. Promoting.. stronger health systems.. more integrated services.. to improve maternal and newborn health, reduce the spread of.. HIV.. prevent and manage unintended pregnancy.. These values guide FCI s work both within our organization and within the global and local communities in which we work:.. Work collaboratively.. Strengthen capacity of local partners.. Ensure participation of key stakeholders.. Base strategies on research and evidence.. Promote gender equality.. Focus on equity and human rights.. Engage marginalized groups.. Respect indigenous cultures and values.. Family Care International has been named a.. by the American Institute of Philanthropy, a nationally-prominent charity rating service that helps donors make informed giving decisions.. AIP's standards for evaluating charities are considered the most stringent in the sector..

  • Title: Letter from FCI
    Descriptive info: Confronting Age-Old Problems.. Spring, 2012.. Dear Friend,.. For pregnant women in poor countries, joy and expectation are always mixed with fear.. They know that giving birth is one of the most dangerous things they will ever do.. Today, a thousand women in the villages and cities of the developing world will die needlessly.. from complications preventable and treatable complications of pregnancy and childbirth, and a thousand more tomorrow.. Over the last century we learned, for the first time in human history, how to make pregnancy and childbirth safe.. For the unlucky one, death may come in a tiny hut in a remote village, where there s nothing to do when a new mother starts bleeding but watch her die.. It may find her at a clinic, where no one has the skills to perform an emergency C-section.. Or she may die in a city hospital, after arriving too late when unwanted pregnancy and unsafe abortion led to a life-threatening infection.. Each maternal death becomes the center of a wider circle of devastation and pain: a newborn who won t survive without his mother, a daughter who must leave school to go to work or take care of younger siblings, a grieving husband getting by on half the family income, parents suffering an unspeakable loss, a community deprived of a young woman s energy, creativity, and productivity.. Family Care International has been working for a quarter-century to build  ...   agenda, and to make sure that governments follow through on their promises.. This work is urgently important, and we will keep at it until every woman can decide for herself whether and when to have children, until every woman who chooses to get pregnant has access to skilled care throughout her pregnancy and childbirth, until surviving pregnancy is not just a matter of good luck.. But we cannot do it alone:.. we need your support.. Even in the midst of the current global financial crisis, major foundations, governments, and other donors continue to support FCI s programs.. But cutbacks in their budgets mean that we need your help to fill critical funding gaps.. Your contribution is essential to all of FCI s vitally important work, now more than ever.. Please give as generously as you possibly can.. Thank you, as always.. Warm wishes,.. Ann M.. Starrs.. President.. View the Letter from FCI.. archive.. Past Letters from FCI.. Making a Difference..

    Descriptive info: Making a difference.. A few minutes ago, a young woman in Kenya developed a sudden hemorrhage just after giving birth; she received emergency treatment, and survived.. Right now, an expectant mother in India is getting medicine to control the high blood pressure that threatens her life and that of her baby, due to be born within weeks.. Later today, a teenage girl in a Bolivian mountain village will learn how to use contraceptives; she won t get pregnant until she decides she s ready, will finish school, and will have a chance to lift herself out of poverty.. These are the powerful, if unremarkable, stories of women whose lives are being saved every day in our battle against maternal death.. When Family Care International began in 1987, more than half a million women were dying every year from complications of pregnancy and childbirth.. New research shows that the policies and programs FCI has fought to put in place are working maternal deaths have been reduced by nearly 200,000 a year.. Every three minutes, a woman who would have been carried to the graveyard now goes home to her family, child in her arms.. FCI s work over the past two decades has helped make this happen.. Here is some of what we ve done this year, thanks to the support of FCI s donors:.. In Burkina Faso, a landlocked, desperately poor country in West Africa, we helped residents of nearly 700 rural villages most of which lack even basic health clinics arrange transportation so that women with obstetric complications can get the lifesaving care they need; and we continued our program that has provided more than 300 women with surgical treatment for obstetric fistula, a childbirth injury that often leads to a lifetime of illness and social ostracism.. In South America, FCI provided women in indigenous communities with information and skills to fight for the maternal health services that are their legal right; and we partnered with six national governments to identify and promote the most effective ways to help teenagers whose risk of maternal death is four times higher than for adult women avoid getting pregnant.. In New York, we teamed up with the UN Secretary-General to launch a Global Strategy for Women s and Children s Health, an unprecedented, progressive plan to save the lives of 16 million women, newborns, and children in the world s poorest countries.. Almost 50 countries committed to new financial investments, policy changes, and health services, giving our work more visibility and greater momentum than ever before.. These successes, and the many women s lives that have been saved, do not mark the end of our work only the end of the beginning.. A pregnant woman or new mother still dies every ninety seconds, 350,000 each year.. Almost all of these deaths are preventable, and at least one in five results from an unplanned pregnancy.. That is why FCI is here, and why we urgently need your generous contribution.. FCI holds governments accountable for meeting their commitments to invest in maternal health and family planning, build clinics, train health workers, and distribute essential medicines.. We educate doctors, nurses, midwives, and clinic managers to offer appropriate, effective care.. And our programs and publications empower women and communities to demand the information, education, and health services they need to make healthy decisions, avoid unwanted pregnancy, and live healthy, productive lives.. Your help is essential.. to all of FCI s critically important work, now more than ever.. This year, the global financial crisis has severely limited the grants available from governments and foundations: we need you to help fill the gap.. top.. A tale of two women.. Dear Friends,.. I d like to tell you about two women.. Both are young, barely out of their teens, and both are pregnant.. The two have much in common, but their very different stories illustrate the range of heartbreak and joy that pregnancy can bring in the developing world.. The first woman lives in a rural village in a very poor country.. She gives birth, like most women in her village, at home, with the help of a local auntie.. After delivering a healthy baby, she begins to hemorrhage.. Neither her traditional birth attendant nor the understaffed and ill-equipped local clinic, where her family eventually takes her, has the skills or the supplies to help her.. She bleeds to death.. Her newborn child, left without a mother, will succumb a few days later.. The second woman lives in a similar village.. She, too, experiences a life-threatening hemorrhage.. But Family Care International has been at work - fighting for more maternal health funding, stronger policies, and better programs; working to improve maternity services in her district; and helping persuade village women to give birth at the local health center.. She chooses to give birth at the clinic, whose skilled staff knows how to stop her bleeding.. Before long, she will be back at work in the family s fields, baby happily strapped to her back.. To the naked eye, these two villages look the same: remote, traditional,terribly poor.. But for two young women, the differences are as stark as life or death.. In so much of the developing world, the second woman s story is still far too rare.. The first story, the one that ends so cruelly, is repeated every minute of every day.. For more than two decades, it has been FCI s mission to change that ending, for millions of women.. We put women s health and survival at the center of global policy discussions.. We pioneer new approaches in the field, from improving dysfunctional clinics to promoting new treatments for common complications of childbirth.. We teach women and young people in villages and cities from the Sahara to the Andes about their bodies, their reproductive health, and their rights, and empower them to make a difference in their own lives and communities.. The world has yet to deliver on the promise that it owes to women everywhere to value their lives and enable them to deliver on their potential, for the sake of their children, for their communities, and most of all for themselves.. Our work will continue until it does.. Warm regards,.. Ann Starrs, President.. Dear friends,.. The last week of September is an exciting time here in New York City, as the world comes together at the UN to confront its most pressing challenges and paralyze our streets.. This year s events showed us both the tantalizing nearness of our goal and the obstacles we must overcome to reach it.. President Obama brought not just a new tone to America s voice but also a public commitment of $63 billion for global health, some of which will go to strengthen public health systems, whose inadequacy is the key reason that Millennium Development Goal 5 (Improve maternal health) is so far off track.. Women dying in childbirth, he said on September 23rd, are a daily challenge to our common humanity.. That same day, FCI as lead advocacy partner in the.. Partnership for Maternal, Newborn Child Health.. helped to organize an event, hosted by the UK prime minister and the president of The World Bank, called.. The focus was on funding for health systems: the presidents of several developing nations promised to provide free health care for women and children, and donor countries committed their support with over $5 billion in new health aid over six years, much of it through new and innovative mechanisms.. The event also launched a new global.. Consensus for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health.. , setting out five key action steps to save the lives of more than 10 million women and children by 2015.. This represents real progress, but it mainly highlights the work still to be done.. It is so profoundly not enough.. The Consensus calls for $30 billion of additional funding specifically for reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health services over the next six years.. However, this  ...   and by NGO professionals like the dedicated, highly-skilled members of FCI s local teams in Africa and Latin America.. Our staff is at work every day, often in the poorest and most remote parts of their countries, helping to build and strengthen the services that save women s lives.. On International Women s Day, we re-committed ourselves as we do each year to our fight against maternal death.. Please join us.. Last Friday afternoon, as you have probably heard, President Obama issued an executive order rescinding the Global Gag Rule.. The president also said that he will work with Congress to restore U.. funding to the UN Population Fund (UNFPA), thus joining 180 other donor nations working collaboratively to reduce poverty, improve the health of women and children, prevent HIV/AIDS and provide family planning assistance to women in 154 countries.. As I wrote to you last week, we and many of our colleagues in the reproductive health community have been working to give the incoming Administration our.. input and encouragement.. as it develops a new approach to the U.. role in development aid and global health.. Last week s important steps are, we hope, only a beginning.. Whatever their intent, the impact of the Global Gag Rule and the block on UNFPA funding over the last 8 years was to withhold.. vital lifesaving services.. family planning, antenatal care, skilled care during childbirth, emergency and postpartum care from millions of poor women in the developing world.. That s why, even though FCI doesn t take USAID funding, we ve been advocating to overturn these harmful policies because we know that U.. funding can do so much to save and improve lives in the world s poor countries.. We hope and believe that President Obama s executive order begins a process of substantive policy change.. That is worth celebrating, but only for a moment we still have.. much to do.. Ann Starrs,.. Dear Friends,.. Motherhood and apple pie.. that s what we call it when a politician tries to avoid controversy by talking about concepts with which no one could disagree.. But perhaps motherhood is not as uncontroversial as this old American cliché would have it.. In truth, supporting motherhood means supporting women s control of their own reproductive health, and too few political leaders around the world have been willing to stand up for that.. Change is coming: last year both houses of Congress passed symbolic resolutions supporting greater global investment in.. But having watched with great hope as Barack Obama took his oath, we are ready after 8 years of U.. policy grounded in ideological hostility to reproductive rights for more than symbols.. Family Care International has been working with colleague organizations to propose a platform for real and lasting progress.. On two recent trips to Washington for strategy meetings, I was often inspired (by our dynamic, practical community of advocates), if also occasionally frustrated (by the challenges we continue to face from forces hostile to reproductive rights).. In these discussions, as in all of our advocacy, FCI works to ensure that the voices of women are heard loud and clear.. For us, universal access to reproductive health care including.. family planning.. , comprehensive.. sex education.. abortion-related services.. is essential to solving the global problem of maternal mortality.. An approach that ignores this imperative would leave millions of women vulnerable to early, preventable death.. We ve been down that road the road of gag rules and abstinence only and it leads nowhere.. There s been little progress against maternal death in the last 8 years, and over 4 million more women are dead.. It s time to head in a new direction.. We know how to save the lives of the half million women and four million newborn babies who die each year from lack of pregnancy care, unsafe abortion, and untreated childbirth and neonatal complications.. Doing what needs to be done ought to be obvious, and no one should be against it.. Just like motherhood and apple pie.. Ann Starrs.. ,.. Then and Now.. Seventy-five years ago in New York City, women were dying in childbirth at almost exactly the same rate as is found today in countries like Bangladesh.. A groundbreaking 1933 report investigating the causes of maternal mortality in New York determined that nearly two-thirds of those deaths were preventable.. Over the next ten years, New York took concrete steps to improve maternity care, and maternal mortality declined by nearly two-thirds.. By the early 1970s, maternal mortality had dropped almost to the rate found today one of history s great public health victories.. This month, the New York Academy of Medicine asked me to deliver a lecture commemorating the anniversary of their momentous study.. The parallels with our situation today are heartbreaking, but also immensely hopeful.. Heartbreaking because, in some African countries, women are dying in pregnancy and childbirth at nearly double the rate that marked New York City s crisis level of the early 1930s.. In the few minutes you may spend reading this email, four or five women will die such preventable deaths, at immeasurable emotional and economic cost to their families, communities, and nations.. So, why are we hopeful? First, because we now know what the solution is to provide family planning and other reproductive health services, skilled care during pregnancy and childbirth, emergency obstetric care for complications, and reliable follow-up care.. Second, because incredible.. work.. by FCI and our colleagues is rolling out these solutions in a sustainable and scalable way.. Third, because a new energy surrounds maternal health, sparked in part by the 2007.. Women Deliver.. conference and the ongoing advocacy that emerged from it.. The missing element is money.. A global investment of $5-6 billion per year to save the lives of mothers and their newborn babies would bring direct financial and human returns, since these deaths now cause $15 billion of lost productivity each year.. As we approach 2009, let s work to make it the year when we transform our hope into action as New York City managed to do long ago.. All our best for a peaceful holiday season,.. , President.. A note on the U.. election.. One of the many remarkable and heartening aspects of the 2008 U.. election is that it has engaged the entire world.. As we have already heard from countless friends, colleagues, and supporters, we are suddenly living in a time not just of daunting challenges, but of inspiring opportunity and hope.. For those of us who work for.. sexual and reproductive health and rights.. , this moment is particularly promising.. Barack Obama has, in his relatively brief time in the Senate, shown a clear commitment to our issues: he has sponsored legislation to support the Millennium Development Goals, has spoken out on the urgent need to build an effective global health infrastructure, and has signed a letter calling on Congress to allocate $1 billion for family planning and reproductive health.. He, along with a Democratic Congress, can fundamentally transform U.. government policy in ways that could have very concrete and real impacts on the lives of women around the world.. But this moment also presents a real challenge.. As we all well know, reproductive health including FCI s core mission of making pregnancy and childbirth safer around the world is just one of many pressing issues that President Obama will find on his desk.. It is our job, together, to continue to argue forcefully for real, sustained political commitment to saving mothers and children s lives, to advocate effectively for the financial investments needed to concretely express that commitment, and to develop the innovative, practical solutions that we know can make childbirth as safe for women in poor countries as it is for the women who voted to elect Barack Obama president.. As always, it is a job we take on willingly, with deep commitment and with great hope.. As always, your.. support.. for our work can make a crucial difference..

    Descriptive info: Working together to improve maternal and reproductive health.. As a leader in the struggle to improve maternal health in the developing world, FCI works to build the.. political commitment and financial investment.. needed to prevent millions of women and babies from dying needlessly from causes that are routinely prevented or treated in wealthy countries.. We actively participate in dialogues with.. governments of both developed and developing nations; speak out at the United Nations and global summits; collaborate and strategize with advocates for.. , child survival, and other important causes to demand working health systems and effective, accessible health care for all; develop publications and articles that stimulate awareness and action among policymakers, technical experts, and opinion leaders; and and engage in a range of international initiatives and partnerships..

After serving as secretariat for the Safe Motherhood Inter-Agency Group, which put safe motherhood on the world s agenda, from 1987 through 2004, FCI became co-chair of the board of this new, broader Partnership (serving in that role until 2011) and co-leading its advocacy strategy.. Through its leadership role in PMNCH, FCI has worked to develop and build support for the Global Consensus for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (2009) and the UN Secretary-General's Global Strategy for Women's and Children's Health (2010), and focuses on holding governments and other stakeholders accountable for the commitments they made to those critical global initiatives..

It adds value by forging a clear, evidence-based consensus on priority interventions and coverage.. indicators, and by providing a mechanism for holding countries and their partners accountable for results.. Countdown was established in 2005 as a multi-disciplinary, multi-institution collaborative effort to track coverage levels for the health interventions proven to reduce maternal, newborn, and child mortality..

FCI serves as host organization for the.. (ICEC).. , an alliance of non-governmental organizations working to expand access to emergency contraception (EC), with a focus on developing countries.. In 1996, the year ICEC was founded, only a handful of countries had a dedicated EC product on the market.. Now women in over 140 countries can obtain emergency contraception sometimes known as the morning-after pill and in around 60 countries, EC.. is available over the counter.. ICEC and its member organizations have played a key role in introducing EC in a wide range of settings.. Still, women's access to EC is far from assured, and ICEC addresses new barriers to EC access.. Most recently, ICEC and its Latin American sister network the.. Consorcio Latinoamericano de Anticoncepción de Emergencia (CLAE).. established a legal committee to bring together lawyers and advocates to address emerging legal challenges to EC availability.. Incomplete abortion, whether spontaneous (miscarriage) or induced, is a global health problem, killing close to 70,000 women each year.. Postabortion care..

The Council works to ensure that all who strive for improvement and equity in global health have the information and resources they need to succeed.. A Commitment to Partnership.. At FCI, partnership lies at the very heart of who we are.. When we were founded in 1987, FCI s first task was to organize the global conference that launched the Safe Motherhood Initiative.. That historic effort connected us with partners with whom we still work closely today.. Two years later, Ugandan women s groups asked for help in designing a safe motherhood project.. FCI opened an office in Kampala, beginning a broad program of in-country activities that continues right up to the present in Africa and Latin America.. We work creatively and flexibly with partners at every conceivable level: with international.. NGOs, research groups, governments,.. donors.. , and United Nations agencies in a range of.. international alliances.. , but also with mothers,.. midwives, and caregivers in remote and impoverished areas;.. with indigenous women s groups and networks of youth organizations; with.. community councils.. and clinic managers; with traditional chiefs, religious leaders, and village mayors.. Global partnerships are important, but change needs to happen locally, because all health care is local.. So FCI builds smart partnerships with the people who really know and understand local conditions and cultures.. We work in countries where maternal health services are often inaccessible, understaffed, or of poor quality to help women,.. communities, and grassroots organizations develop the skills to.. demand the health care that is their right..
