Empowering women this International Women's Day

A mother poses with her newborn in a small village in Ethiopia. Approximately 500,000 women die annually while giving birth in the developing world. The Ethiopian government has launched new programs to train community health workers on clean and safe delivery methods and early postnatal care for the mother and baby. (Ethiopia, 2009)
