Innovation Description

Northern Uganda has both high fertility and high maternal deaths. Delays in seeking, accessing, and receiving care increase maternal mortality, especially in conflict-affected settings. Poor recognition of pregnancy and labor danger signs by community health workers (CHW) impedes women??s access to healthcare. Transport is a barrier to access and to effective supervision and referral.Lack of trust between CHW and health workers increases delays in receiving care.
