Marie Stopes International : 5 films, 5 issues, 5 years
Make Women Matter campaign inviting the world to come together to improve maternal health by 2015
APRIL 2011 - Every day, an alarming number of communities are losing mothers, wives, daughters, sisters and friends. Most of these deaths are preventable; all that's needed is access to family planning and high quality healthcare.
Make Women Matter, a campaign from PMNCH partner Marie Stopes International, is highlighting the need to improve the lives of women around the world and to put an end to preventable deaths that are the result of pregnancy and childbirth. The campaign has produced five inspirational films about the personal experiences of women in Sierra Leone, Bangladesh, South Africa and Uganda. Each film offers a unique insight into the life and death challenges faced by girls and women in poorer countries.
