  • Ultimately, our goal is to reduce maternal mortality at a population level.  This is expressed commonly as the Maternal Mortality Ratio (MMR), which is a public health outcomes measure that describes the risk of pregnancy in a population.  Its units are deaths per 100,000 live births.  The current best estimate of MMR in Achham is 800.  This is 200x higher than the MMR of 4 in many communities in the United States.   The most precise data on MMR are taken from facilities data.  These, however, are typically not very accurrate since they grossly underestimate MMR in areas such as Achham where only a small number of pregancies actually take place in medical facilities.  In Achham, for example, the number is 0.5%, or 1 in 200.    Greater details regarding the methodology for our mortality assessments are provided on our Mortality Data page.
  • Stress the “success” of being approached by the gov’t for collaboration – this slide should really just be “a few months after opening the clinic, we were approached by the government and local community, and offered to join in a public-private partnership to re-open the Bayalpata HospitalBridge to next slide where meat of the discussion is (with text bullets)
  • Stress the importance of our philosophy in how we approach our work
  • After discussing importance of transitioning to Bayalpata, this should be a quick overview of basic services
