HealthProm is a UK-based international development NGO, whose origins date back to 1984.   Drawing on an extensive network of British specialists in health, social care and education,  HealthProm works with local partner organisations in Eastern Europe, Central Asia and Afghanistan to ensure vulnerable children have the best start in life. By vulnerable, HealthProm means those children whose physical, emotional, cognitive and social development is held back because of poverty, social exclusion or disability. HealthProm supports them through strengthening families and communities, improving access to health and social services, and promoting access to education. They work with and through local partner organisations. The key principles guiding their activities are capacity-building for sustainability, evidence-based practice and partnership working. In Afghanistan, HealthProm works specifically on safe motherhood as the point in the life cycle at which the least expenditure can deliver the most health gain.
