MATERNAL HEALTH CHALLENGE; PAKISTAN
PROVEN INTERVENTION TO BE DISTRIBUTED
Learn more about the Maternal Health Challenge and how the distribution of Misoprostol, a $3 drug that can prevent maternal deaths from postpartum hemorrhage, could save thousands of lives.
DISTRIBUTION MODEL INNOVATION
Safe Delivery, Safe Mother is a new social venture aiming to reduce maternal mortality in Pakistan. The team will train community midwives to prevent postpartum hemorrhage through administering a safe and cost-effective drug, Misoprostol. The three month pilot aims to train 100 CMWs within rural villages to effectively administer misoprostol, measure blood loss, and to change the communities’ perception by addressing socio-economic constraints. In the long-term, they aim to scale nationally by reaching high poverty rural areas with the highest maternal mortality rates, and play a critical role in reducing postpartum hemorrhage in Pakistan.
