Laerdal Global Health


Every year, 40 million women across the world
give birth without a skilled birth attendant.

Every day, 800 mothers die giving birth.
Every day, 8 000 newborns die.

Most of these deaths are preventable.


At Laerdal, we believe we can help.


Laerdal Global Health is the not-for-profit sister company to Laerdal Medical dedicated to helping save lives of mothers and newborns. Together with global partnerships and alliances, we develop simple, affordable products and programs to help train and equip birth attendants in low-resource countries. By 2020, Laerdal Global Health aims to help save 400 000 lives on the day of birth, every year.
