Who We Are
Antara International is a US-based 501(c)(3) non-profit. We tackle maternal and child mortality and malnutrition, through public health innovations at scale. We support on-ground activities of The Antara Foundation (TAF), a non-profit registered in India.
Maternal and child mortality and malnutrition are one of India’s biggest health problems. There are simple solutions to tackle this preventable tragedy. The challenge is delivering these on a large scale.
TAF's ecosystem of interventions pinpoints high-risk individuals to ensure access to timely and focused care. TAF works with and through government and community, for public health delivery at scale.
140,000 frontline workers trained on TAF's AAA platform, 120,000 deliveries made safer, 1.5-3X improved identification of high risk pregnant women and malnourished children.
