Maternal, newborn and child health (MNCH) refers to the integrated continuum of care that delivers tools and treatments to mothers and their infants at critical points, and to children in their first five years of life.  In developing countries, many tools and treatments are not reaching moms and their children at the critical times and places to save lives.  Mothers often deliver at home and rarely see a trained health provider. Even when they can see a skilled provider, effective interventions are often unavailable or not practiced, leading to a high risk of death from pregnancy and childbirth
