BKFA works to provide a cleaner and safer birthing environment for women in developing countries to reduce the number of mothers and babies who become unwell or die as a result of childbirth. They also work towards sustained improvements in maternal and newborn health for vulnerable populations through the development of collaborative community development projects.
These six basic items enable mothers to give birth in a cleaner environment, reducing post-natal infections for both mother and baby.

Each birthing kit is assembled, transported and distributed free of charge to mothers, birth attendants or service providers in often remote locations. Kits are accompanied by instructions on use and disposal, and are integrated into local maternal and newborn health programs run by BKFA field partners.
