Happy International Women's Day!
Today we recognize, celebrate, and honor the thousands of Ugandan women and girls we work with every single day. As mothers, daughters, educators, students, providers, fighters, and survivors, we are grateful for their determination and resiliency in working towards designing a better future for themselves, their families, and their communities.
For this International Women's Day, we'd like to highlight our newest initiative, the Maternal Emergency Transport System (METS). With our overall mission to significantly reduce maternal and neonatal mortality in our communities, we recently kicked off the METS program to provide timely transport for women with obstetric emergencies to local health facilities.
