African 1000 Days Action

The African 1000 Days Actions (ADA) is a start-up non-government organization that brings affordable quality maternal healthcare to poor women. Through its South Sudanese Project, ADA will preserve lives of thousands of mothers who previously were dying from lack of a low-cost uterotonic drug (misoprostol) that prevent and treat postpartum hemorrhage (PPH). Randomized controlled trials showed that misoprostol can reduce PPH by up to 47%.
