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,
childbirth and in the first month. Simply put, UDHS (2016) shows that maternal mortality rate stands at 336
per 100,000 live births and the neonatal mortality rate at 27 per 1,000 live birth.
