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

Postpartum Hemorrhage – Pubs Maternal Health

Community-Based Distribution of Misoprostol for the Prevention of Postpartum Hemorrhage: Evaluation of a Pilot Intervention in Tangail District, Bangladesh
The leading causes of maternal mortality are hemorrhage, eclampsia, abortion, injuries, sepsis, and obstructed labor. Deaths related to postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) present a major challenge to health systems, particularly in rural areas of Bangladesh, where infrastructure is poor and health facilities often lack skilled staff, drugs, and equipment. Misoprostol is a proven uterotonic drug that is increasingly used in clinical and home delivery settings to prevent and manage PPH.  In 2008, the Mayer Hashi/RESPOND Project implemented a pilot project in the Tangail District of Bangladesh to determine the effectiveness of using government and nongovernmental field workers at the community level to distribute misoprostol tablets and ensure that women take the drug immediately postpartum. This evaluation report discusses the process, approaches, and strategies followed in the implementation of the pilot project and uses a review of relevant project documents and activity reports, as well as interviews and focus group discussions with clients, service providers, supervisors, and program managers. The overall goal of the evaluation was to assess the effectiveness of the community-based misoprostol intervention program strategies and to gather lessons learned and provide recommendations for the national scale-up.
