FIGO logo

Safe Motherhood Program staff and international colleagues were thrilled with the opportunity to share NASG findings with colleagues from around the world at this prestigious forum.

Over 9000 representatives from many countries and organizations attended this conference, hosted by the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics in Cape Town, South Africa. Many were interested to hear about a first-aid device that keeps women alive during transport to hospital and while awaiting treatment for obstetric hemorrhage.

We presented hard-hitting evidence of the NASG’s utility to people from influential organizations such as the World Health Organization, Health Ministers and policy officials, and a whole range of public health professionals who can help further the reach of such an important device.
