Increasing Access to Safe Delivery

Future Health Systems

This is a film about the Safe Deliveries study project of the Makerere University School of Public Health which was conducted in the eastern Uganda districts of Kamuli, Buyende, Pallisa and Kibuku. The project sought to increase skilled deliveries through an intervention that comprised both demand (vouchers for transport and maternal services) and supply side initiatives (training health workers and provision of essential equipment, drugs and supplies).
