Action for Mothers and Children, AMC, is a non-for-profit foundation with the foremost goal to save the lives of children and improve the health care for mothers in the Republic of Kosovo through developing better systems for the care of pregnant women, and their children.

It has been established since 2009 as Foundation for Healthy Mothers and Babies and grown into Action for Mothers and Children since 2013. The impetus for creating this new, nonprofit foundation emanates from USAID funded primary and reproductive health programs that have been implemented by Doctors of the World, AIHA, AmeriCares, the Dartmouth Medical School and their many colleagues in Kosovo. AMC represents a foundation developing health programs and providing resources for the Gynecology/Obstetrics Clinics (that care for mothers), Neonatology Intensive Care Units (that care for critical premature babies) and Pediatric Clinics (that care for children suffering from Leukemia, Heart diseases, Asthma and other illnesses).
