Meet Mardochée, a little boy who was born premature but was stabilized through immediate and continuous skin-to-skin contact with his mother, "Mama" Sophie (a method known as Kangaroo Mother Care).
In Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), maternal and child mortality remains among the highest in sub-Saharan Africa. Since 2010, the USAID-funded Integrated Health Project (IHP), led by Management Sciences for Health (MSH) in cooperation with the Government of DRC, has been implementing high-impact interventions to end preventable maternal, newborn and child deaths, including the life-saving approach Kangaroo Mother Care.
