Purpose of Ellavi


Ellavi UBT supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #3: To reduce, by the year 2030, the global maternal mortality ratio to less than 70 per 100,000 live births (currently it is around 216 deaths per 100,000 live births).


Postpartum hemorrhage:
A treatable condition that kills 112,000 mothers a year.

Postpartum hemorrhage can happen to any woman anywhere, but 99% of all deaths occur in low resource areas, such as Sub-Saharan Africa. The deaths of these women leave children without mothers and communities devastated. These deaths can be prevented.


The Need, By the Numbers


14 million annual cases of postpartum hemorrhage.

120,000 estimated annual deaths from postpartum hemorrhaging.

There are estimated 800,000 annual cases where uterotonics (drug interventions) are ineffective (sub-Saharan Africa 500,000 and India 350,000).

About 11,000 hysterectomies could be averted in one year in sub-Saharan Africa alone.
