Viola Vitalis AB is concerned with the physical and mental development of our future – the children. However, the health care of mothers is equally important for giving birth to healthy babies. Taking care of premature babies for their proper upbringing and care is equally important. Therefore, we have launched a campaign named “Networking to Improve Health Care for Mothers and Premature Infants in the Baltic region and Moldova” with financial support from the Swedish Institute. The aim of the campaign is to create a network to address the health care challenges of premature birth and mother care in the Baltic region (Sweden, Estonia, and Lithuania) and Moldova, raising public awareness and suggesting possible solutions for future action and ideas for an extended project in a larger network. In order to make this a successful project, we have collaborated with an excellent group of renowned professors like Prof. Staffan Polberger, Lund University Hospital, Executive committee member of the European Milk Bank Association (EMBA), Prof. Dr. Heili Varendi, Tartu University, and Hospital, Estonia and many others.
In the 21st century, information and communication technology has developed to an extent where it can provide connectivity almost anywhere in the world for almost all sorts of solutions. This has increased the accessibility of education, healthcare, and other essential services. With a view to making quality health care more accessible, Viola Vitalis is currently working to implement e-satellite clinics in Estonia, Georgia and Ukraine named E-SATCARE, being funded by the Swedish Institute. The objective of the e-satellite clinics is to reduce child mortality and morbidity rate while improving the overall health care of mothers and children in the countries mentioned above. The E-SATCARE project is a collaborative effort led by Viola Vitalis in cooperation with the Parliament of Ukraine, East Tallinn Central Hospital in Tallinn, the Department of Pediatrics of the University of Tartu, the Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine, and many other renowned institutions and professors from different countries including Sweden, Estonia, Ukraine, and Georgia.
