Innovation Description

Poor access to maternal care services is a known determinant for low rates of facility births and adverse maternal outcomes. In Zimbabwe, 73% of maternal deaths are attributed to delays in accessing care (1), resulting from long distances and travel times to health facilities, limited transport options and lack of transport funds for maternal care. Roads become dysfunctional during the wet season due to precipitation and floods, leaving many pregnant women vulnerable to poor maternal outcomes.
