This instructional pamphlet uses both pictures and text to explain the correct use of misoprostol for the prevention of PPH. It was developed as a tool that organizations or health facilities can use to educate providers, families, and women on how to use misoprostol for prevention of PPH.

The pictorial panels are targeted to illiterate and low-literate audience and the descriptive paragraphs serve to explain the pictures and provide supplementary information. The organization or health facility distributing the pamphlet may include their contact information in the space provided at the top of the sixth panel.

Folding instructions:

  1. Fold pamphlet length-wise along the dotted-line in the middle of the paper so the pictures and text face out.
  2. Then fold the 6 panels along the dotted vertical lines accordion-style, so all panels lay on top of each other with the title panel in the front and contact information in the back (see pdf link called instructions for additional information).
