Prevention of Postpartum Hemorrhage in Refugee Populations
With funding from the MacArthur Foundation, Pathfinder strengthens reproductive health care services and prevents postpartum hemorrhage among refugee and displaced persons camps in western Tanzania. Pathfinder’s aim is to improve the Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP), a coordinated set of priority activities implemented in the early days and weeks of humanitarian crises. As part of the MISP improvement, the project has pioneered the use of the non-pneumatic anti-shock garment and supported the standard inclusion of postpartum hemorrhage model technologies in the MISP.
Project activities ended earlier in the year, but the project was extended to compensate for unavoidable delays in procurement of critical supplies and equipment for project facilities. The remaining supplies and equipment have been procured and distributed so that facilities will continue to provide needed services.
This project uses Citizen Report Cards to convince government officials to allocate funding for contraception during stock outs. Two local NGOs are being training to use this tool for government accountability of a lack of supplies.
This project sought to improve, scale up, and institutionalize HIV and AIDS prevention and youth-friendly sexual and reproductive health services. Institutional capacity building was a key component of the project.
This project provides technical assistance and support to local organizations in Uganda and Tanzania, with the goal of improving each grantees organizational capacity to affect health and community systems strengthening.
Pathfinder International was recently named one of three NGOs chosen by Merck for Mothers to lead efforts to reduce maternal mortality in some of the most at-risk states in India.
