20230512T0900 20230512T1000 Africa/Johannesburg Amplifying the Need for Access to Safe Blood for Maternal Health

Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is a leading cause of maternal mortality worldwide. Timely access to safe blood transfusion as an essential component of emergency obstetric care remains a challenge in settings where the national blood supply and safe blood systems are inadequate.  This working session will convene interested participants to inform an advocacy agenda for access to safe blood in the context of maternal health. Participants (donors, government representatives, global health partners, and blood system stakeholders) will consider opportunities for support from the global health community and brainstorm evidence and efforts needed to amplify the agenda for strengthening national blood systems.

This is an open invite. Please email Adeel Ishtiaq (aishtiaq@r4d.org) to indicate RSVP.
