Summary

Roughly 800 women die per day from preventable complications from a home delivery, and through our partnership with Nyaya Health, GlobeMed at Tufts has pledged to assure that the women of Accham, Nepal, have a different fate. Please join us in our goal to fund prenatal, ambulance, and hospital delivery care for 23 women in rural Nepal.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The community of Achham, Nepal faces a high burden of maternal mortality due to childbirth. A woman in Achham is over 200 times more likely to die during her pregnancy than a woman in the United States. This wide disparity is due to the difficulty of accessing safe delivery services and together Nyaya Health and GlobeMed at Tufts aim to provide women with a solution.

How will this project solve this problem?

By raising money to fund maternal health at Bayalpata Hospital, mothers who would ordinarily have no access to delivery services will be provided with prenatal care, ambulance transportation to the hospital if necessary, and a delivery at Nyaya Health's Bayalpata hospital. These services are provided free of charge regardless of the mother's ability to pay.

Potential Long Term Impact

The ultimate goal of this project is to reduce maternal and infant mortality in the community of Achham through increasing access to high-quality healthcare facilities, namely Bayalpata Hospital. By providing safe deliveries free of charge for mothers in Achham, Nyaya aims to ensure the well being of the next generation and increase awareness of the importance of maternal health services in Achham.
