Challenge

The Dominican Republic has one of the highest figures for maternal and neonatal mortality in the region. In 2017, 188 maternal deaths occurred and 88% due to avoidable causes. In 2018, neonatal mortality increased by 31% in the first quarter compared to the previous year. The majority of these deaths are related to the lack of information about their reproductive processes and the inability to make timely decisions, due to the poor quality of health services, obstetric violence, the delay to go

Solution

Empowering women about their right to have information about their processes, receive quality care, timely access to health services and good nutrition, will allow the reduction of maternal mortality in the Dominican Republic.

Long-Term Impact

The project will help 500 women on their sexual and reproductive rights, which will improve their quality of life and reduce maternal and neonatal mortality. It also contemplates the participation of the different social actors for the monitoring of health services.
