South Sudan is an African country that is recovering from civil war, famines, and political instability. Despite its petroleum reserves, Maternal Mortality Rate (MMR) is 789 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births. Previously, it was 2,054 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births, which was the highest in the world. Still, more than 80% of childbirths happen without the help from a skilled birth attendant and postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is the leading cause of maternal deaths in the country.
