Gynuity Shares Research and Programmatic Updates in Maternal Health
Gynuity Health Projects works with partners globally on promising interventions to improve the diagnosis and management of preeclampsia and postpartum hemorrhage (PPH). Our efforts are focused in limited-resource environments and community settings where the need for simple, cost-effective and low-tech solutions is the greatest. Three recent publications share evaluations of new approaches that can aid in prompt recognition and clinical care of women at risk of experiencing a life-threatening complication. This research was completed in Bangladesh, Egypt, Mexico, Pakistan, Senegal and Uganda. We also describe our newest endeavor to develop a simple obstetric early warning smartphone app for birth companions to assist in active postpartum monitoring of women.
