dc.description.abstract For every 100,000 live births in South Sudan, over 700 women die due to preventable pregnancy and delivery complications. This 5-minute video describes conditions for pregnant women in South Sudan. The “Innovating for Maternal and Child Health in Africa” (IMCH) initiative in South Sudan, works through enhanced training to address individual and community health issues, and through building research capacity of existing health personnel and volunteers. Evidence-based research leads to improved health care delivery. Currently, less that 15 percent of births are attended by skilled health personnel, and infant mortality rates are 100 per 100,000 live births. en
