Recently Mary attended the 10th anniversary of the Maternity Foundation in Copenhagen and that occasion was also used to launch a new app about safe childbirth and it is aimed at women in Africa in general, especially south of Sahara. And in particular health care personnel.
It is an interesting fact that more in Africa have access to a working smart phone that to running tap water. As such apps are ideal means to reach a large audience.
The purpose is the reduce the appalling number of women who die giving birth.
The app has been developed by an obstetrician (you know birth doctor) at Odense University Hospital.
You can read about the app at maternity.dk or get the app at Apple's ap store "safe delivery".
At the event Mary met a number of people involved in the Maternity Foundation or otherwise involved in the projects in connection with the foundation. Among them Feyisa Gudeta, who is project manager in Ethiopia and as such has a firt hand knowledge of the problems.
- And that folks was all for this week. - I hope it wasn't too dry to read nor too boring.
