AUSTRALIANS FOR WOMEN’S HEALTH

THE HEALTH OF FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES IS STRONGLY TIED TO THE HEALTH OF WOMEN. THE ILLNESS OR DEATH OF A WOMAN HAS SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES FOR THE HEALTH OF HER CHILDREN, HER FAMILY AND THE COMMUNITY.

MATERNAL HEALTH

Every day around the world, 1,000 women die as a result of pregnancy complications. Ninety-nine percent of these deaths occur in developing countries. In Nepal, a woman dies in labour every 4 hours and a baby, every 15 minutes. The large majority of these deaths are preventable.

PROLAPSE DOWN UNDER

In its more severe forms, genital (or pelvic organ) prolapse is a distressing and disfiguring disease. University studies have shown that there are 200,000 women in Nepal who suffer with severe pelvic organ prolapse and are in urgent need of surgery. Very few surgeons in Nepal who can provide this surgery.

CORPORATE SPONSORS

A4WH is grateful to sponsors of the prolapse treatment camps. B. Braun Medical Pty Ltd has been generous in their supply of surgical instruments valued at approximately AUD$10,000. All of these instruments have been invaluable to A4WH surgical camps in Nepal.

Christmas Gifts That Save Lives

TRAIN A MIDWIFE

One of the best ways to stop mums and babies dying in Nepal is to train more Skilled Birth Attendants. Sponsor a midwife to train over a 12-month period and you can create a birthing experience that’s both safe and caring.

HOSPITAL BLANKETS

Keep mums and babies warm in the foothills of the Himalayas

SECURE MEDICINE CUPBOARD

Vital medicines need to be kept secure from mischievous hands!

TAPS TO SUPPLY CLEAN WATER

Hygiene is crucial to prevent the spread of disease.

Plumbing to hospital wards provides far more reliable clean water.

NEWBORN BABY COTS

Hospital cots are vital
for the care of the newborn babies in poor health.

LABOUR WARD EXAMINATION LIGHT

Adequate light is crucial for the safe birth of babies.
Power supply is unreliable in Nepal. All hospital lights need a backup battery supply.

CESAREAN SECTION INSTRUMENTS

So many babies’ lives are saved with emergency cesarean sections.
Our hospitals require several sets of instruments to provide this crucial
on-going care.

WE’RE BUILDING A HOSPITAL

Donating Today!

All donations are Tax Deductible.

A4WH is currently building a hospital for mothers and babies in Charikot, NE Nepal, an area devastated by the earthquake in 2015. Apart from providing critical care for those in need, the hospital will become a major teaching centre for doctors, midwives and nurses. It will also be the base for an extensive community health program, providing essential public health measures and medical research in the area.

All funding for the construction of the hospital will come from personal donations.

As little as $2 will provide medications to prevent life threatening haemorrhages in pregnancy.  $150 will pay for an operation to fix a woman suffering with genital prolapse.  $50,000 will pay for a surgical ward.

HISTORY & ORIGINS

A4WH is an Australian charitable trust. It was founded in 2010 by Gynaecologist Obstetrician, Dr Ray Hodgson. The objective of A4WH is to improve the appalling state of women’s health in Nepal.

Volunteer hours served in 2019.
