Advancing Postpartum Hemorrhage Care
Postpartum hemorrhage remains the leading cause of maternal death in most low-income countries. In response to this challenge, U. S. Agency for International Development (USAID) invested in a global partnership to implement a portfolio of activities to advance evidence to action needs in Malawi and Madagascar.
The Advancing Postpartum Hemorrhage Care partnership, co-managed by the Health Evaluation and Applied Research Development and the Breakthrough RESEARCH projects, collaborated with a strategic set of partners to generate innovative ideas and lessons learned in support of PPH prevention and treatment. Focus areas include mentorship and health provider training, availability and access to blood, referral systems, and surveillance and response systems for maternal death.
