Description

Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH)—excessive blood loss during or following childbirth—is a leading cause of death worldwide.  PPH prevalence is higher in countries with constrained public health care resources. Together, global health experts, humanitarian organizations, and national governments are working to reduce maternal deaths caused by PPH by addressing challenges such as lack of information around PPH interventions, limited access to commodities that treat and prevent PPH at the point of care, and widespread quality issues with PPH commodities. By strengthening the systems that select, deliver and manage these commodities, mothers—including those in countries with constrained public health care resources—will experience far less risk during labor, birth and immediately postpartum. To that end, GHSC-PSM created a compendium to summarize the supply chain lessons for increasing availability and ensuring quality of postpartum hemorrhage commodities and includes lessons learned from country approaches and global initiatives
