Every time a woman speaks up about her experience of sexual violence and she’s not believed, rape culture flourishes. Every time you hear a survivor’s story: 1-Listen. 2-Believe. 3-Support. https://t.co/FG2M7sWbdk #orangetheworld #GenerationEquality

Great session! One takeaway from Maria Bakaroudis of @UNFPA_ESARO: Training and supportive supervision of healthcare providers on rights and needs of people with disabilities is key for provision of respectful care & inclusive health services #ICASA2019Rwanda #ICASA2019

Essential & Emergency Obstetric Care

Appropriate maternal health care can mean the difference between life and death for a pregnant woman. Ensuring that women everywhere have access to such care could save hundreds of thousands of lives a year. With skilled care that is quickly accessible, common complications such as pre-eclampsia or a malaria infection, as well as serious conditions like obstructed labor, can be safely managed. EngenderHealth is working to make high-quality essential and emergency obstetric care available in places where women and families need it most. We do this by: 

  • Improving providers’ clinical skills for routine prenatal care
  • Ensuring that lifesaving postabortion care is available
  • Upgrading facilities in consultation with local partners
  • Increasing the availability and quality of emergency obstetric services, including
  • Treating and preventing obstetric fistula
  • Mobilizing communities to recognize danger signs and to prepare emergency transport of pregnant women to health facilities
  • Promoting increased availability of a low-cost treatment for pre-eclampsia and eclampsia, one of the leading causes of maternal mortality worldwide
