The HLFPPT project aims to ensure that the would-be-mothers have a safe pregnancy and enable them to deliver healthy babies under medical supervision. It also contributes towards improving the overall healthcare quality in UP starting with one mother-baby pair at a time.

HLFPPT CEO, Sharad Agarwal, said, "In India, a woman dies during pregnancy and childbirth every eight minutes. Pregnant women from poor communities are deprived of basic tests, medicine and nutrition, putting their and their babies' lives at risk. With concerted efforts we can give these women access to quality healthcare and prevent thousands of avoidable deaths."

HLFPPT has already been working through its network of hospitals called Merry gold Hospitals, and has partnered with 300 hospitals to provide safe pregnancy and delivery facilities to poor women, including medical checkups, counseling support, medicines, tests, nutritional supplements and delivery care.

More than five lakh women have availed of healthcare services through HLFPPT hospitals so far.
