BeSci to make births safer

In Haiti, low rates of prenatal and postnatal care, and institutional births, are contributing factors to high maternal and neonatal mortality rates. In an effort to provide actionable ideas to reduce mortality rates, eMBeD sought to identify structural and behavioural barriers preventing women from attending prenatal care visits, and from delivering at a health institution. The next phase of the project will encourage pregnant women to be screened and monitored with behaviourally informed pregnancy risk messages.
