Saving Money, Saving Lives: Community Saving Groups Lead to Improvements in Maternal and Newborn Health Care in Uganda

Published on 1 October 2016

Future Health Systems (FHS) work on maternal and newborn health in the poorest districts of eastern Uganda has contributed to a story of community empowerment where people have learnt to prioritise, prepare and save money for childbirth. This increases the likelihood of delivery in a health facility, and therefore the chances of a healthy pregnancy and safe childbirth under skilled care.
