Remote Tibetan mothers have a 1 in 15 chance of dying in pregnancy or delivery -- 3 x riskier than a US soldier in Afghanistan. Births are unattended. 1 in 5 children die before the age of 2. There is no access to quality care. Surmang has reduced mat. mortality to 0. We'll extend that to 4 PH partner townships. The project has 2 parts: 1) Surmang clinic's 2 doctors & 40 Community Health Workers. 2) partnership with the Yushu PH system. Here we train 40 doctors & 50 Village Health Workers. project reportread updates from the field
