    Global Maternal Health Conference 2013 Urban slum areas differ greatly between countries providing unique obstacles to providing quality maternal care. The three presentations from BRAC in Bangladesh focused on: moving home-births to facilities by establishing birthing huts and establishing community and capacity development, interventions by educating pregnant women and their families on the importance of facility births, and the use of CHWs to disseminate information to mothers and families. In Senegal, Dior presented on Intrahealth's work with a mentorship program that was provided for health workers in the field. The last two presentations were from the Halo Foundation in India, describing the self-help group system and the use of community leaders to improve maternal health.

              Global Maternal Health Conference 2013 This session focused on the infrastructure needed for quality maternal health care. Bizimana began the session by describing work in one hospital in Uganda around facility readiness. Findings included that staff and personnel were not prepared for the work they needed to do, and infrastructure of the hospital itself (including waste disposal and electricity) were not taken care of. With a 4 month intervention, key issues were resolved leading to better maternal health outcomes. Villegas described her work focused on Mexico state within the country of Mexico. Looking at this large hospital system, they used a systematic approach using key steps made a difference to address problems at the hospitals. Results of the intervention included increased quality of care indicators and reduced maternal mortality. Keyes described research on EmONC facility needs. The team focused on 6 countries, and took note of facility's infrastructure, infection prevention, services offered, guidelines, human resources, HMIS, laboratory, drugs, and equipment and supplies. The score of the facility is related to each country's MMR rates, to show the relationship of how facility capabilities ties directly to MMR rates. Saronga described the cost effectiveness of rural health posts in Tanzania. Their study found that different costs were found for different clinics, causing variability in not only cost, but services provided/available, leading them to realize the need to better streamline quality and cost of care.

                    from Paolo Patruno / Added

                    “I WANT TO BE A MIDWIFE” is part of the documentary project "BIRTH IS A DREAM" which aims to document and raise awareness about Maternal Health in Sub-Saharan Africa. Photos and footage were captured in Jinka, Ethiopia, documenting AMREF Canada’s program to improve maternal and child health in the Omo Valley. Midwives are women, mothers, who have devoted their lives to providing safe motherhood to other women and mothers. Access to skilled care from a trained midwife during pregnancy, childbirth and after delivery is key to saving a mother’s life and that of her child. By training more midwives, AMREF is helping deliver an immediate, lasting solution to reduce maternal mortality in Ethiopia.
