Jacaranda Health is a non-profit organization that is believes every woman and her family should experience childbirth safely and with dignity. Founded in 2011, we set up gold-standard maternity hospitals to deliver high quality maternity care in the private sector. We are now working with governments to improve the quality of care in the public sector hospitals, where the majority of under-served women deliver babies. In a short period of time, Jacaranda has deployed innovative, low-cost tools and processes that are dramatically changing the status quo in government hospitals. From 3 hospital partners in 2015, we now work with 100+ hospitals across 5 Kenyan counties – see our most recent 2018-19 impact report. We have an ambitious scaling strategy for catalyzing change across the country and the region.
