The TRAction project is supporting research conducted at the International Center for Diarrheal Disease Research, Bangladesh (icddr,b) exploring the underlying cultural barriers that lead to early marriage and high rates of teenage fertility in Bangladesh.
TRAction is currently funding a research study in Bangladesh exploring the effectiveness of a community-based intervention to address severe pre-eclampsia (SPE) and eclampsia cases. Mothers who experience eclampsia/pre-eclampsia receive an early loading dose of Magnesium Sulphate by trained community health providers before referral to hospitals.
Ensuring access to treatment and healthcare services is an essential component to a healthcare system. However, populations in remote and underserved areas are often left without the same level of health services and care as populations in urban areas. Resource and time constraints to reaching urban facilities often leave rural population at a disadvantage and contribute to morbidity and mortality in emergency situations.
