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.
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.
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.
Keep mums and babies warm in the foothills of the Himalayas

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
