Innovation Description

In Cameroon, poor rural woman suffers inequitably from preventable, ill-health and death due to maternal related causes, with maternal mortality at 596/100,000 lives birth(1). These rural women, especially those with no formal education, make up the majority of the deaths. Most of the interventions currently being delivered do not address their needs(2). This results in a low demand by these women for, antenatal care, skilled birth deliveries, and family planning(3-5).
