We started a project in one of the districts in Uganda with a high mortality rate of mothers and newborns caused by perinatal infections.

Neonatal deaths are inextricably linked to the conditions of delivery and newborn care. Many women die every year during pregnancy and childbirth as a result of conditions that could have been prevented or treated. Poor quality of care due to an insufficient number of skilled health workers and lack of basic equipment, as well as long distances from home to health care facilities are major deterrents to facility delivery. Women living in rural areas, those who come from the poorest families and those who are less educated, have the least access to skilled attendance at delivery.

Uganda has a shortage of well-equipped, community-based facilities and trained healthcare workers. With limited access to transportation, poor road conditions, and an under-resourced health system, many women do not receive timely, quality care.

Within the project we focused on training local health care providers, lifesaving resources and community outreach, as well as health education for mothers, improving access to medical care for women in rural settings.

Thanks to this project we protected health and life of 1000 mothers and 1000 newborns.
