Maternal Health in Emergency Situations

leave a comment »

UNICEF/UN Radio produced a podcast on maternal health last fall, Delivering on the Front Lines: Maternal Health in Conflict, Post-Conflict and Emergency Situations. The podcast features a panel of experts who examine the impact war and other emergent situations have on pregnant women and new mothers. “During armed conflict, the well-being of women is threatened by physical, sexual and psychological abuse, and vital maternal care services are typically disrupted by the devastation of health infrastructure.” You can listen to the 23 minute podcast here.
