Challenge

The leading causes of death for women of reproductive age in our region are complications of pregnancy and childbirth. Additionally, many more women suffer from illness and disability related to childbearing. In Kenya, more than 500,000 women die each year from complications related to pregnancy. A large number of these deaths and injuries could be prevented with wider access to skilled care before, during and after pregnancy. Pregnant teenage girls face high-risk and need proper maternal care.

Solution

It will focus on high-risk pregnant teenage girls without clinical facilities. Will provide antenatal, delivery and postnatal care as follows; a) Antenatal care will perform physical investigations, laboratory tests and counselling. The counselling involves HIV/AIDS counselling & testing, infant feeding, nutrition, birth preparedness and contingencies on possible complications. b) Delivery will involve managing labour using partograph. c) Postnatal will involve managing mother & child care

Long-Term Impact

The project will have improved identification of high-risk pregnant teenage girls and facilitate access to care from skilled birth attendants for these girls and save lives at birth. It is also anticipated that there will be an increased sense of hope and inspiration to these high-risk pregnant girls. Newborns will also stay healthy and nourished.
