Research and ISRC Grant Information

One of the Rohde Foundation's initiatives is the Mothers Providing Care (MPC) program. The objective of the MPC program is to train a voluntary group of female community leaders to provide outreach educational instruction to pregnant women. The outreach instruction includes the expectations and complications of pregnancy, with specific focus on the signs and symptoms of preeclampsia and postpartum hemorrhage, and the significance of these, as contributors to the poor outcomes of pregnancy.

The purpose of the research study, Evaluation of Mothers Providing Care Program and its Effectiveness in Reducing Maternal Morbidity and Mortality in Ghana, is to assess the impact of the MPC program in reducing eclampsia and postpartum hemorrhage. The first part of the research survey was completed in August 2009 (currently being analyzed), and yielded 596 surveys on the prevalence of these two disorders in the region. The 2010 survey's purpose will be to identify the impacting factors of the MPC program in reducing maternal morbidity and mortality through early recognition and evaluation of deleterious conditions.

The anticipated outcome is that when women understand and recognize these warning signs and risk factors, that they will seek timely medical care from health professionals and/or hospitals. We expect to expand this program to other areas of Ghana, and the ultimate goal of this study is to decrease the maternal morbidity and mortality in the eastern region of Ghana.

An ISRC Grant was obtained by Drs. Ahmed and Cho in November 2009.
