Pregnant women, small children, older people, and disabled people are especially vulnerable.

According to the statistic, Globally 529,000 women die annually due to pregnancy related problems and in Pakistan alone this toll is about 35,000 deaths per annum. The state of Azad Jammu & Kashmir has manifold health issues including lack of infrastructure, modern health equipment and qualified and trained medical human resource. The status of maternal and child health is very poor in the remote and mountainous areas of AJK. The maternal mortality ratio (MMR) of AJK ranges from 201 /100,000 live births. This situation is even more critical in the rural remote areas of Azad Jammu & Kashmir (AJK).

To overcome the issue related to mother and child health, Sustainable Development Organization has been established the 24 maternity and child health center to all vulnerable and remote communities of AJK under its Maternal Child Health Program. Under this valuable program more than 4965 mothers obtain direct and 39720 people obtain indirect benefit.

AJK with a hilly terrain is engaged with broad service delivery challenges for water and sanitation. As a result thousands of women and children spend several hours a day collecting water from distant, often contaminated sources. Especially women in poor communities have to walk miles to fetch water from rivers and wells which put their security at risk and expose them to vulnerabilities. In AJK 40% population is still deprived from drinking water facility at their door step. Understanding local behavioral and cultural practices relating water, sanitation and hygiene by gender, SDO has been working to help ensure more people in AJK have access to clean and safe water by constructing gravity water supply scheme and providing hand pumps in rural areas.
