Challenge

Over half a million Rohingya refugees currently live in one of the largest and most overcrowded refugee camps in the world. Among them are over 64,000 pregnant women who urgently need maternal health care. With the monsoon season underway, their need is more urgent than ever. UNFPA is the lead agency on the ground providing life-saving services to ensure every childbirth is safe. But shortages of supplies and trained midwives continue to put the lives of mother and newborns at risk.

Solution

By providing the essentials, the kit helps pregnant women who are unable to get to a health facility. An emergency birth kit contains soap and disposable gloves, a plastic sheet that provides a clean surface to protect both mother and newborn, and a fresh razor blade, antiseptic and tape to prevent infection when the umbilical cord is cut. UNFPA-supported midwives provide care before, during and after delivery that can save the lives of many mothers and newborns.

Long-Term Impact

UNFPA is working with governments and partners everyday to help strengthen health systems and increase access to care in over 155 countries, areas and territories around the world. This will promote women's empowerment, safe motherhood, and reduce maternal mortality around the world.
