"When a woman gives birth, there are many places in Africa where they say, 'Mwapusukeni. . .Thank God, you have survived'", says Dr Thomas Burke, founder of Ujenzi Trust and Director of the Division of Global Health and Human Rights for Massachusetts General Hospital. This 15-minute film offers a rare glimpse into remote villages in South Sudan as MGH teams lead innovative, medical-training programs to reduce the highest maternal and child mortality rates in the world.
