CW+ New Futures
The difference in global maternal health between well-off and resource-poor communities is vast. The life-time risk of maternal death for women in Chad is 1 in 15 compared to 1 in 6,900 in the UK.
98% of all new born deaths occur in developing countries. Tragically many of these deaths are easily preventable as they follow treatable illnesses, such as simple infections or breathing difficulties.
CW+ New Futures wants to change this by:
Improving the skills and care of maternity teams in resource-poor settings;
Providing high-quality maternity interventions via an ‘Global Obstetric Trainee Scheme’;
Repairing and treating chronic maternity conditions such as obstetric fistula;
Trialling affordable, effective interventions to prevent fistula formation;
Adapting MedNav, an innovative emergency application, for resource-poor settings.
We need to raise £750,000 over the next three years to implement these plans.
