The project expects to spend at least RMB 60 million within three years and provide poor maternal women and newborns with continuous and in-depth services such as pregnancy check-up, nutritional support, growth monitoring and health education. The project aims to reduce maternal and child health risks, improve overall population quality, enhance health service capacity and ultimately promote the sustainable development of rural poverty alleviation. Up to now, the project has provided basic public health support for approximately 469,000 women of childbearing age in seven counties of four provinces to ensure the quality of our population in the early stages of life.

This “on-chain model”, built in an innovative way, will encourage public communication and engagement, in an aim to expand project impact and credibility.
