Ehsas Foundation

Poor health and poverty go hand-in-hand...


Across the poorest parts of the world people are still dying from  diseases that are easily cured. Healthcare costing just a few pounds  really can save lives.


Ehsas Foundation fights poverty by improving the health of millions of the world’s poorest people.


Through long-term health care and education programmes, as well as immediate medical assistance in emergencies, our programmes create long lasting change.


Our work on health particularly focuses on mothers and children, who often are the most vulnerable to disease and malnutrition. We work on reproductive health issues as well as children's health, nutrition, infectious diseases and water and sanitation.

In Pakistan for example, Ehsas Foundation has been working on the serious need for emergency obstetric services for women in the rural highlands. We included not only women and their families in the planning and decision making about the services, but also the wider community, health workers and policy-makers.

Ehsas Foundation's work has seen the number of women who used emergency services more than doubled and mother and child survival rates improved dramatically.


Our other reproductive health programmes focus on family planning, antenatal care, access to services, and prevention, detection and treatment of sexually transmitted infections, including HIV and AIDS.


Please support our work to improve the health of the world’s poorest people.
