HDI´s mission is to advance world public health and human dignity, especially the health and socioeconomic situation of under-served populations which more than others are significantly constrained by preventable, degrading disease.
HDI has collaborated with Government of Niger to rapidly achieve MDGs 4 and 5 on a public health scale, and on rapid community-based prevention of obstetric fistula since 2008. Beginning in late 2013, Government of Niger and HDI are collaborating on a nationwide Initiative to Prevent Women from Bleeding to Death at Childbirth.
