The SHARE Project

Post Date: 07/30/2014

By examining the medical causes of maternal mortality, as well as the socio-cultural, economic, and topographical factors contributing to maternal mortality in the context of rural India, the SHARE Project, through the work of Dr. Jameela George and her colleagues, has developed an emergency referral system that is dynamic, results-oriented, and replicable. It is hoped that this sustainable model might be adopted in other contexts to reduce maternal mortality and promote the health and dignity of women.

The Share Project’s community-based model is built around the promotion of institutional deliveries, the creation of educational programming, strategic alliance with healthcare providers and transportation infrastructure, and the empowerment of women.
