Abstract Between 300,000 and 500,000 women die each year from problems related to pregnancy. Ninety-nine percent of these deaths, which are often preventable, occur in developing countries. One of the leading causes of maternal death in the developing world is pre-eclampsia, a pregnancy condition that is characterized by high blood pressure and protein in the urine. In an effort to drastically reduce cases of pre-eclampsia, Italy-based Giunti Labs is helping the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology and the Oxford Maternal & Perinatal Health Institute (Green Templeton College) at the University of Oxford in the U.K. develop educational material on maternal health for midwives, nurses, and doctors in developing countries, notably India, Mexico, and Nigeria. The material, delivered via e-learning, focuses on pre-eclampsia.
