Prevention of Postpartum Hemorrhage Initiative (POPPHI) Working Group

POPPHI is a USAID-funded partnership of PATH, RTI International, and EngenderHealth. The objective of POPPHI is to expand the use of active management of the third stage of labor (AMTSL) for prevention of postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) at the facility and community level, and to make uterotonic drugs and devices available at low cost to countries. The POPPHI team works closely with a range of international and national partners to share information and, ultimately, increase use of measures effective in the prevention of postpartum hemorrhage. Gynuity Health Projects works with POPPHI to disseminate information on PPH, especially the use of misoprostol for prevention. For additional information please visit http://www.pphprevention.org.
