In Afghanistan, 1 out of every 11 mothers die during pregnancy or childbirth - and the odds of their babies surviving are not much better. However, through access to education and medical resources, nearly all of these deaths are preventable. Watch how CARE is training community educators to help women stay healthy through birth and their babies' first years of life through the OMID program in Afghanistan.

In rural Ayacucho, Peru, CARE found that only one-third of women who needed obstetric services actually accessed them, and for those women with complications who reached the health center or hospital, one in 60 did not survive. Our approach to this challenge was to work with community leaders, local women and health workers to understand and address causes that contributed to the high maternal death rate. Watch this video from renowned photographer and CARE supporter Phil Borges to learn how CARE fostered change that is saving women's lives.
