  • 1. Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health in East Africa
  • 2. Discussion Topics
    Current State of MNCH in East Africa.
    Kissito Healthcare Interventions.
    Why Global Health Matters.
  • 3. “The probability that a woman will die from a maternal cause is 1 in 31 in sub-Saharan Africa compared with 1 in 4,300 in developed regions. The risk of stillbirth during labour for an African woman is 24 times higher than for a woman in a high-income country.”
    The State of the World’s Midwifery 2011,
    Delivering Health, Saving Lives,
  • 4. “Every year approximately 350,000 women die while pregnant or giving birth – almost 1,000 a day. Of these women, 99 percent die in developing countries. An estimated 8 million more suffer serious illnesses and lifelong disabilities as a result of complications at the time of childbirth.”
    The State of the World’s Midwifery 2011,
    Delivering Health, Saving Lives,
  • 5. “Every year up to 2 million newborns die within the first 24 hours of life. In addition, there are 2.6 million stillbirths, of which approximately 45 percent occur during labour and birth. Millions more newborns suffer birth traumas that impair their development and future productivity.”

  • 6. The Challenge
    • The United Nations committed to 8 specific goals for improving the quality of life of those living in developing countries.

  • Millennium Development Goals

    Maternal mortality ratio
    Proportion of births attended by skilled health personnel
    Target 5B: Achieve, by 2015, universal access to reproductive health

    The world health report 2005 – Make every mother and child count. Geneva, World Health Organization, 2005 (http://www.who.intwhr/2005/en, accessed 14 August 2008).
  • 13. Root Causes of East African Maternal/ Newborn Death and Disability
    Access to at least one antenatal visit (Ethiopia 28% / Uganda 94%).
    Births Attended by Skilled Health Professional (Ethiopia 6% / Uganda 42%).
    Lack of basic EmONC systems and referral interventions.
    Availability of human resources, essential drugs, supplies, and equipment throughout the health system.

  • 14. The Role of Human Behavior in Maternal Death
    A sense of fatalism…it was meant to be.
    Acceptance…this is the way it has always been.
    Greed…a lack of regard for the value of human life.
    Transference of responsibility …she should have gotten here sooner.
  • 15. Maternal Death in Mbale, Uganda September 20, 2011
  • 16. New York Times July 29, 2011
  • 17. Global Health’s Unintended Consequences
    Each donor dollar has resulted in a $0.43 to $1.14 decline in developing nation funding.
    Physician migration to non-patient services/private hospitals/out of country.
    Donor funding is transitory (the 3 year grant project) resulting in a continual regression to the mean.
    Capacity building is silo based…new hospitals without staff or supplies.
    Quality is forgotten in a frenzy to spend donor dollars on capacity building.
    Little attention is focused on behavior change.
    Getting what you asked for…the India Hospital Birthing experience.
    Incentives to misreport Health Statistics.
    Donor reporting and site visit burden.

    “With regard to FHW practices in the 2-3 months since training, participants reported an average of 3.0 referrals (range 0-20) to a higher level of care. Furthermore, 78.3% of FHWs were more likely to refer patients as a result of the training they received.”
    Maternal, Newborn, Child Survival (MNCS) Initiative
    Interim Evaluation: Executive Summary
    DRAFT, September 2011
  • 42. Measuring Performance
    Everything we undertake must be measured!
    Kissito has adopted five universally recognized and benchmarked indicators
    by which we expect to be judged.
    • Infant Mortality Rate
    • 43. Maternal Mortality Ratio
    • 44. Child Mortality Rate
    • 45. Malaria Mortality Rate
    • 46. Diarrhea Mortality Rate
  • Maternal Death was inevitable…until Kissito opened a shuttered Operating Theater.
  • 47. Rural Ottoro Hospital is expected to open in January of 2012, in an area where obstetrical complications frequently result in death or disability.
  • 48. Supporting neighboring facilities with EmONC physicians and supplies.
  • 49. Kissito is fully committed to treating acutely malnourished children, like 4 year old Mane.

  • 54. Dr. Kiprono introduces Doppler and Portable Ultrasound to the L&D of Mbale.
  • 55.
  • 56.
  • 57.
  • 58. Why Global Health Matters
    • Contributing to the betterment and care of all life is at the core of our humanity. The happiness, meaning, and higher calling we experience in the care of our patients often leaves us wondering who is benefitting more.
    • 59. When you have one physician for over 330,000 people…then one more physician will have a meaningful impact. When patients are dying from the lack of sutures…then saving the sterile but discarded sutures at your hospital will have a meaningful impact. When basic skills are lacking…taking the time to share your knowledge will save lives.
    • 60. When Global Health does not matter to us: We are really saying…human life…at least in certain places…is no longer important. As individuals we can make a difference…collectively, we can transform the world!
