In 2018, the Nepali government was restructured to place more resources in the hands of rural communities. Though not without a learning curve, the restructuring gave the local communities themselves a greater level of autonomy in deciding the best ways to prioritize their own local maternal and newborn health needs, and the most appropriate solutions for each community
The One Heart Worldwide 2018 Report emphasizes their work adapting to new challenges with program highlights, stories from the field, and what the path forward for the remainder of 2019 looks like as they strive to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality.
