CARE has implemented the Community Score Card (CSC) in various communities in Malawi in the quest to improve maternal health. The link below takes you to a raising the score video that shows an empowered community on a mission to improve maternal health. The CSC provided an open forum for the community members, service providers and government officials to engage in discussions about the maternal health problems plaguing the community. The community and the service providers together formulated an action plan and tasks to achieve safe motherhood. The CSC process has built a strong sense of ownership among the community members and determination to work towards safe motherhood.
Many people in the community gave birth at home and many women died during birth, but now they come together to solve these problems.
“Safe motherhood, we own it”
