Maternal Mortality Reduction Project with PIH
In the small southern African country of Lesotho, high rates of maternal mortality and morbidity threaten the country’s young mothers. Lesotho is one of the few countries in the world where the number of women dying of maternal causes has increased over the last decade. Many of these women, especially in the mountains of rural Lesotho where Partners In Health works, die of causes that could be prevented if they had access to skilled delivery assistance and emergency obstetric care. project reportread updates from the field
Every 20 seconds, a child dies of a disease that could have easily be prevented with a vaccine. The UN Foundation's Shot@Life Campaign educates, connects and empowers Americans to champion vaccines as one of the most cost-effective ways to save the lives of children in developing countries. Together, we can decrease vaccine-preventable childhood deaths and give every child a shot at a healthy life. project reportread updates from the field
