Every year, 40 million women give birth without a skilled birth attendant

Despite progress, maternal and child mortality rates are still unacceptably high around the world — especially on the day of birth — which accounts for over 20 percent of deaths of children under the age of five. The vast majority of these deaths occur in low-resource countries. Most of these deaths are preventable.


mothers die due to pregnancy and birth complications


newborns die during the first month


babies are stillborn

At Laerdal, we believe we can help.

Laerdal Global Health (LGH) was established as the non-profit sister company to Laerdal Medical dedicated to helping save lives of mothers and newborns in low resource settings. With the support of our global partnerships and alliances, LGH develops simple, affordable products and programs to help train and equip birth attendants. 

Our training and therapy products have been adopted and utilized in more than 95 low and middle income countries.  With the support of our partners, more than 500.000 birth attendants have been trained to be lifesavers. By 2020, Laerdal Global Health aims to help save 400.000 lives, every year.
