In several of the countries I have lived in there is a high death rate among new-born babies and their mothers due to sepsis after the delivery. When midwifery kits have been distributed and shown how to be used there is a marked reduction in the incidence of infection.
For the simple cost of eight dollars a Midwifery kit can be assembled by placing two flannel blanket. a polypropylene sheet, three sutures, a blade, soap, and gloves in a ziplock bag.
