In developing countries, many women have no access to maternity services due to distance to health facilities, cost for medical services and products and local customs, often resulting in unhygienic delivery conditions that increase rates of infant and maternal tetanus and other life-threatening infections.
To make delivery safer by preventing infection, PSI offers clean delivery kits in multiple countries and regions.
A clean delivery kit provides the necessary tools and instructions to achieve the World Health Organization’s “Five Cleans” throughout the birthing process:
Where permitted by local regulations, PSI clean delivery kits may also include:
Misoprostol taken immediately after delivery significantly decreases a woman’s risk of postpartum hemorrhage and does not require refrigeration or injection, making it possible for a woman to take it after a home delivery without a trained attendant.
PSI is a global health organization dedicated to improving the health of people in the developing world by focusing on serious challenges: a lack of family planning, HIV and AIDS, barriers to maternal health, and the greatest threats to children under five, including malaria, diarrhea, pneumonia and malnutrition.
A hallmark of PSI is a commitment to the principle that health services and products are most effective when they are accompanied by robust communications and distribution efforts that help ensure wide acceptance and proper use.
PSI works in partnership with local governments, ministries of health and local organizations to create health solutions that are built to last.
