10 Safe Delivery Kits For PNG

Give the gift of life with our 10 Safe Delivery Kits for PNG.

Pregnant women in Papua New Guinea are more than 30 times more likely to die in childbirth than pregnant women in Australia, and for every 1,000 live births, 21 children die within the first 28 days. But you can help provide life-saving care.

Each kit includes essential medical supplies, such as surgical gloves, antibacterial lotion, and iron folic acid tablets to ensure a safe and healthy delivery. With your gift, you can make a real difference in the lives of mothers and their newborns.

Dedicate this gift to a loved one and provide 10 pregnant women in Papua New Guinea with the necessary supplies to have a safe delivery. Together, we can work towards a world where every mother and child has access to quality healthcare.

 

Each Kit contains:

  1. Surgical gloves
  2. Scalpel blade
  3. Cord clamp
  4. Chlorhexidine lotion
  5. Tetracycline eye ointment
  6. Iron Folic Acid tablets
  7. Compress gauze
  8. Bar of soap
  9. Plastic sheet
  10. UNICEF carry bag

In Papua New Guinea, only 56 per cent of births are delivered by a skilled health professional, making childbirth a dangerous and risky experience for many mothers and newborns. 

Some women choose to give birth at home because health facilities may not offer adequate services, like basic medical supplies. For others, like Vivienne, the nearest health facility can be over three hours away.

"Many mothers give birth at home because of the long distances to health facilities, mountains to climb, or raging rivers to cross," says Vivienne. 

"Sometimes when we call for the ambulance, they tell us the ambulance is not working, so the mothers have no choice but to give birth at home." 

Vivienne is pregnant with her third child and after experiencing complications during her first child’s birth, and the premature arrival of her second child, she is advocating to other women to deliver their babies in the hospital. As UNICEF-supported Village Health Assistants, Vivienne and her husband, Gatanue, have received training on the Safe Delivery Kits and how to support pregnant women in their village.

"In the first week of our training, we learned about the contents of the delivery kit and how to use each item. I feel that these kits will be useful to help mothers who live too far away to even walk to a health facility. It is important for us to have these kits with us at home and use them when there is an emergency." says Vivienne.
