Maternal Mortality Reduction in Low-resource Settings, A Successful Story of University of Gezira Initiative for Safe Motherhood and Childhood
Keywords:Keywords: maternal mortality, neonatal mortality, low-income countries
The scope and aim of this study are to review our experience in maternal mortality reduction in Gezira State, Sudan in a major health project initiated by the University of Gezira, Sudan in 2005, as a low-resource setting in Africa. The evidence was related to village midwifes, rural hospitals, the cause of maternal mortality, available obstetrics resources, equipment, manpower, and training in all hospitals in the region. Interventions led to a remarkable reduction in the maternal mortality ratio. The Safe Motherhood initiative is an ideal program of social accountability for medical school to meet their community's needs in a scientific way.
