Scaling Up Uterine Balloon Tamponade System for Postpartum Hemorrhage in Kenya and Sierra Leone

We propose to roll out and evaluate a next-generation uterine balloon tamponade (UBT) device to arrest maternal hemorrhage in Kenya and Sierra Leone, where maternal mortality statistics are alarmingly high. We will deploy UBT as part of a best-evidence package of training, commodities, and checklists related to the treatment of PPH. We have established strong proof of concept for our package in these countries. The UBT system will also include cutting-edge cell phone technology that will facilitate UBT referral tracking and documentation of patient outcomes.
