About the Project

Infection is a common complication for women following childbirth, especially when they’re giving birth in a less-than-sterile environment. The World Health Organization estimates that infection causes 13% of childbirth-related deaths.

Fortunately, these infections are usually preventable.

Through the Safe Motherhood Kit™, IMA is working to provide the basic supplies women need to protect themselves from infection and focus on what’s important: regaining strength and caring for their new baby.
