 UNFPA estimates that in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, more than 800,000 women will give birth in the next 12 months. Without life-saving emergency obstetric care, more than 120,000 could face a complication that might be life-threatening. To mitigate this, UNFPA has been working closely with governments and partners to help health workers provide safe, compassionate care for women, through the provision of personal protection equipment (PPE), disinfectant materials, and reproductive health supplies.
