Featured Infographic: Saving Mothers’ Lives Through Inexpensive Medicines


For Mother’s Day, PAI created an infographic about saving mothers’ lives in low-and middle-income countries through simple, live-saving medicines. PAI is a global organization advancing the right to affordable, quality contraception for every woman, everywhere. Due to the small numbers of physicians in countries like Zambia, Togo, and Mali, PAI argues that frontline health workers like midwives, volunteers, and also community health workers should be trained to administer medicines including oxytocin and misoprostol for hemorrhage and magnesium sulfate for eclampsia. momsmatter2infographic_branded_RGB7
