The Problem

Despite valiant efforts from countless organizations to achieve the United Nation's Millennium Development Goals, the alarming mortality rates of women and babies in Indonesia — and abroad — are still staggering. In Indonesia, the maternal mortality rate is 228 per 100,000 live births, with infant mortality at 27 per 1,000 births — still one of the highest in Asian nations.

Bumi Sehat Foundation International's mission is to reduce maternal and child morbidity and mortality and to support the health and wise development of communities. Toward this goal, we provide general health services, emergency care, prenatal, postpartum and birth services and breastfeeding support; in addition, healthcare and youth education, environmental and disaster relief programs.

Bumi Sehat is devoted to working in partnership with communities to improve quality of life. In this way we are building peace.
