A Thin Line: addressing the challenge of women’s healthcare in Africa, Postpartum Haemorrhage (PPH)

Data from cache

Every year 7 million women who survive childbirth suffer serious healthcare consequences, mainly due to anaemia and PPH. Haemorrhage is also the largest cause of maternal death, killing almost 100,000 women each year – even though it is preventable and manageable with the right knowledge, skills and resources.

Told in their own words, this film follows the stories of a number of survivors of PPH in Ghana, highlighting the need and benefit from investing in maternal health, including training and education of health care workers, women themselves – rather than just saving one life, this is making an investment in future generations.

Film by Medical Aid Films, Yann Verbeke, Simon Sticker, with footage from the World Health Organisation (WHO)
