The major interventions that MERF implemented across its projects include;

MERF focuses on providing nutrition specific interventions that address the immediate determinants of maternal and child under nutrition. 

Research & Studies

MERF has qualified professional and dedicated survey and research team at country as well as at provincial level. This include health experts, Bio statistician, M&E professional and sector specialist.

WASH

Safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) are critical to people’s health and well-being, and especially to maternal, newborn and child health (MNCH). Almost 10% of the global burden of disease is attributable to unsafe WASH and women and children are most affected by the consequences of poor access to these services.

Publications

“Before MERF, the condition of hospitals in Thatta was very poor. We see that after MERF taking over of hospitals, there is huge improvement in service delivery despite the fact that the budget given to them is same as previously available and there is no increase in budget. MERF has managed to add new specialties like cardiology, Eye, Dental and are doing a good job in maintaining the cleanliness of the hospital. There is very significant improvement in Gynae department with proper labour rooms. Similarly, significant improvement can be witnessed in Accident and Emergency Ward, where previously doctors and medicines were not available.”
