Every year, approximately 287,000 girls and women die from pregnancy-related causes. Are you a health worker on the front lines working to prevent these deaths? Are you a citizen journalist uncovering inequalities in maternal care? Are you an activist fighting abortion policies that endanger women's lives? Are you a concerned citizen who has witnessed tragedy and is compelled to speak out? Are you aware of innovative solutions to maternal mortality you want to see shared and replicated?
If you have a perspective on maternal health issues in your community, we want to hear from you!
We are partnering with Women Deliver to raise the volume on voices speaking out for maternal health. World Pulse community members from across the globe have gotten this initiative off to a great start with powerful solutions:
- Adepeju in Nigeria seeks increased regulation and training for traditional birth attendants to prevent tragedy.
- Upasana in India laments the deadly delays confronting women with delivery complications. She envisions emergency obstetric care services within the reach of all pregnant women.
- Precious in Cameroon calls for awareness to prevent women from being coerced into unnecessary caesarean sections.
