Reports indicate that every 90 seconds a mother dies while giving birth to her baby.
80% of these are preventable. 15% of the women worldwide have complications during pregnancy. The top 5 reasons for maternal death are: hemorrhage, sepsis, unsafe abortion, hypertensive disorders and obstructed labor.
MSF (Medecins Sans Frontiers) is an organization that is striving to reduce maternal deaths by ensuring basic unit care during pregnancy and after delivery. It provides surgical care, clean blood, medicines and neonatal care.
