Singing to Reduce Mortality Rates

The International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics reported today that Pastor Charles and Mai Olivia Charamba have composed a song to assist the spread of information regarding maternal mortality rates in Africa. The aim of this musical collaboration is to help reduce the too high rate and with the assistance of the United Nations Population Fund the song is to become the theme for the Campaign on Accelerated Reduction of Maternal Mortality in Africa (CARMMA). Through alerting the wider public of the need to address maternal mortality rates, many hope that the song functions as an educating device that can spread important information in ways that more conventional educational campaigns have not been able to. Indeed this creative approach to an incredibly important issue serves to remind about how high the mortality rates are throughout much of Africa. Other creative steps that can be made to address the maternal mortality rates include donating to the Saving Mothers Causes campaign on Facebook to allow Doctors and Nurses trained and supported by Saving Mothers to provide gynecological and obstetric education and training under the POWHER program in Liberia.
