A Project Aimed To Support Maternal And Neonatal Mortality Reduction In Rural Uganda

Challenge

Every day, 16 women die in Uganda from pregnancy and child birth related causes, 94 babies are stillborn
and 81 newborn babies die. This equates to 69,570 deaths each year due to complications during pregnancy,

per 100,000 live births and the neonatal mortality rate at 27 per 1,000 live birth.
