Description: Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 The Rural Extended Services and Care for Ultimate Emergency Relief (RESCUER) pilot project in eastern Uganda uses a VHF radio and mobile walkie talkies to enable a network of traditional birth attendants to partner with the public health service centers in order to deliver health care to pregnant women. This results in increased and timelier patient referrals as well as providing health care to larger numbers of pregnant women. RESCUER led to a reduction in maternal mortality from 500 per 100,000 in 1996 to 271 in 1999.
