Every year over 287,000 women die during childbirth. It's not just their newborn baby left motherless but any siblings as well. Global Health Charities is committed to help significantly reduce these deaths by providing Clean Birth Kits (CBKs). The CBKs provide a clean birth environment thereby reducing the chance of infection for both mother and baby.
Every year more than 4 million babies and 287,000 women die during childbirth. 95% of these deaths occur in impoverished nations and 90% of these deaths are preventable. Infections from unsanitary conditions during the birthing process constitute a considerable number of these deaths.
Global Health Charities (GHC) provides clean birth kits (CBKs) to pregnant women globally with limited or no access to medical facilities or care. GHC's CBKs address the World Health Organizations six (6) cleans for childbirth: clean hands, clean perineum, clean birthing surface, clean umbilical cord cutting implement, clean cord tying and clean cord care. Each CBK contains the following items: alcohol pads, soap, gloves, gauze, plastic sheeting, razor blade, hat, blanket and cord clamp.
Studies show that CBKs have a significant impact in reducing infections during childbirth for both mother and baby. Anecdotal evidence shows a high demand for the CBKs by expectant mothers. "The Sisters in Nigeria had great success in reducing the mortality/morbidity of births using the clean birth kits and leveraging their use to provide pre-natal supplements and do training of the local midwives & outreach workers." - Sr Mary Louise Stubbs, DC IPS Director - Nigeria
