How We Work
Embrace donates our low-cost Infant Warmer to populations in need through establishing partnerships with like-minded NGOs who are serving our target communities. As Embrace works through a program model with designated partners, we cannot give away or sell units to individuals.
Raise awareness of the devastating impact of hypothermia in premature and low birth weight babies among health care staff, mothers, families and community members.
Provide on-going training and support on use of the Embrace infant warmer and Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC) as critical interventions for hypothermia.
Provide complementary health education focused on addressing the root causes of low birth-weight, hypothermia and other maternal/child health issues as relevant to the community.
Collect monitoring and evaluation data to better understand the program’s impact on maternal and child health outcomes.
Embrace works to catalyze the creation of new technologies or interventions with strong potential to improve health outcomes in developing countries. We aim to develop innovative solutions to maternal/child health challenges, and then work to get those solutions directly to the people who need them most.
