Saving the MOTHERS and UNBORN CHILDREN
SAVING the MOTHERS and UNBORN CHILDREN
‘Saving Both Generations’ seeks to confront and help eliminate the precarious circumstances of Expecting Mothers.
Our comprehensive intervention will eliminate the Three – Delays and conditions of accessing health care in 30 Rural Communities. A sustainable Maternal Health program to save close to 15 expecting mothers and unborn children per week in 22 communities and 8 health centers. These programs will eliminate Malaria related deaths in rural areas, especially among children of school-going age.
This is NOT a One-Time project, it’s perpetual, and so the impact of your work REMAINS.
Contributing 80% of the Maternal Health achievements in any jurisdiction we operate as envisaged by the SDGs by 2030.
Infant and Maternal Mortality remain the facts of life in rural Ghana. Circumstances for expecting mothers have not been satisfactory, and the rural communities are the most affected.
The World Health Organization has also affirmed that inadequate health facilities, long distances to health facilities, lack of effective and efficient transportation systems, inadequate health personnel, and the inability to afford the cost of health services as major obstacles limiting rural people.
Every Pregnant Woman is considered to be at ‘At-Risk’ of developing a complication. This can also affect the Unborn Child.
There are known life-threatening Medical Complications that can lead to Maternal and Infant Mortality, as well as Maternal Morbidity, which may occur during pregnancy, labor, or childbirth. A few of these include:
Postpartum Hemorrhage, Preeclampsia and Eclampsia, Miscarriage, Maternal Sepsis, and Postpartum sepsis, Obstructed Labor, Preterm or Pre-mature birth.
Following this, a series of medical activities must be undertaken with the aim of determining pre-existing medical conditions of women – before and during pregnancy. This is to prevent INDIRECT OBSTETRIC DEATHS by investigating Indirect Medical Risk Factors. Some include Diabetes, Anemia, Malaria, High Blood Pressure, Hepatitis B, and infections.
There are also Community Risk Factors that serve as major obstacles limiting rural people from accessing health services. Such as:
Poverty, Distance to facilities, Lack of information, Inadequate and poor quality services, Cultural beliefs, and practices.
PARALLEL INTEGRATION has a responsibility towards these two categories of realities and has taken the challenge. Hence,
We defy barriers, travel to the cut-off communities, Investigate, Find the problem, Intervene, and Blow the Whistle.
WHAT WE WANT TO ACHIEVE
Our ambitious goal is to get rid of Maternal and Infant Mortality especially in Rural Settings, by focusing on these three most important areas, as shown below:
1. PREVENTING INDIRECT OBSTETRIC DEATHS: We investigate the under-listed Indirect Medical Risk Factors that can also trigger Obstetric Complications, then we activate appropriate responses.
Diabetes, Anemia, Malaria, High Blood Pressure, Hepatitis B, Infections, Heart disease, Kidney Disease, Cholesterol, and Poor Nutrition.
2. COMMUNITY RISK FACTORS: That is, confronting the Socio-Economic and Cultural Causes of Maternal Mortality as indicated above.
3. AVOIDING DIRECT OBSTETRIC DEATHS: Applying our Safety- Net protocols, we Collaborate and Mediate to mitigate Health Service Risk Factors responsible for Direct Obstetric Deaths.
HOW DO WE MAKE THIS HAPPEN
‘MOBILE MATERNITY CLINIC’
We achieve this overall agenda by supplementing our SOCIO-ECONOMIC AND CULTURAL INTERVENTION APPROACH with essential Medical Activities using Our BroadStrategy called the ‘ Mobile Maternity Clinic’.
In effect, we strive to ‘SAVE BOTH GENERATIONS’ – The Mother and Child.
