AXA Mexico’s contribution to reduce neonatal deaths in Chiapas
CEO AXA Mexico
“We treat many pregnant women between 12 and 18 years, who come to our hospital to deliver their premature babies”. This was one of the statements of the medical staff in one of the three public hospitals I visited in Chiapas this month. Located in the south of the country bordering Guatemala, Chiapas is one of the poorest states in Mexico. Through its foundation, , AXA Mexico supports three public hospitals with medical equipment and training: Ocosingo, San Felipe Ecatepec and Bochil, have received donations of incubators, vital signs monitors, respirators, and more to help reduce the mortality of newborns. Also, doctors and nurses are being trained in the use of the new equipment as well as in neonatal reanimation and obstetric emergency. Later this year, a fourth hospital in Motozintla will receive similar donations and training.
This is in complete harmony with AXA´s and AXA Mexico´s Foundation objective: which is facilitate access to quality health services.
It is uplifting to see the difference we have already made to many women and their newborns. There is more to be done – I warmly invite you to contribute so that we can continue to help the most vulnerable in these remote communities.
