Preventing and Treating (Pre)Eclampsia

Research Overview

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.

Community Based Treatment

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.
