Save life of 300 cyclone affected pregnant women, live in remote costal island of Bangladesh, providing training, transportation, diet and medicine supports for using life saving maternity services

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

All pregnant women of cyclone affected island of southern Bangladesh are at risk of avoidable maternal death as no health services exist there. About 15% pregnancies develop complications requiring life saving interventions from district hospital, which is inaccessible due to distance (60 KM) & bad communication, resulting high incidences of maternal death. CDHC provides those women with health education, emergency transportation, medicines and diet supports for preventing death and disability.

How will this project solve this problem?

The project will train pregnant women including their husbands & in-laws on pregnancy danger signs for seeking maternity care. It will provide emergency transportation supports by Water Ambulance to reach district hospital, medicines and diets.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will save the life of 300 pregnant women and their newborns from avoidable death or disability, which has also long term impact on family livelihood (enabling coping with health shock & stress), happiness, and most importantly her children's health & well being.
