The Right to Safe Motherhood for Every Woman, Everywhere
In this Summer 2013 edition of Pathways, we explore our global work in safe motherhood, sharing the inspiring story of Grace and Benson, a couple living with HIV who were able to keep their baby free from the virus with the help of the Pathfinder-led APHIAplus Nairobi-Coast program in Kenya. The issue also explores Pathfinder's "continuum of care” approach to preventing and managing postpartum hemorrhage in India and Nigeria, with assistance from the non-pneumatic, anti-shock garment.
This issue of Pathways explores Pathfinder's ongoing commitment to addressing the urgent needs of pregnant women and how we are improving their chances for a safe delivery—from India, to Nigeria, to Pakistan.
We believe change starts with expertly trained providers and pharmacies that never run out of supplies. It starts with open conversations among women, young people, men, religious leaders, mothers-in-law, policymakers, and others, joining to discuss their beliefs and remove barriers to their health and well-being. Our 2014 Annual Report shows a few highlights of how Pathfinder has served as a catalyst for change over the past year.
