Sinoe County Safe Motherhood Project

Situation

Sinoe is extremely remote, extremely poor. Most people have little or no access to health services.

In 2009, after a horrendous 14 year civil war, only 17% of health facilities remained. The Liberian maternity mortality rate is 7 maternal deaths per 1,000 births, chronic malnutrition is rampant (41% of children under 5 have stunted growth), and malaria (although preventable and curable) remains the largest cause of death and illness among children and pregnant women.


Project Goals

  • Three year Safe Motherhood project to improve maternal and child mortality and morbidity rates.
  • Strengthen the community through health education, and support for maternal and child health. 
  • Provide training and material support to 7 health facilities.
Medical Teams International is the only organization providing these services in Sinoe.

Program Offerings

  • Safe Motherhood Project health education and technical support
  • Build health care capacities both in and outside of health facilities
  • Medicines, training, care/treatment, supplies
