Review for Curamericas Global, Raleigh, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Curamericas Global, an international nonprofit, with financial and managerial support from “partner” communities, established Casas Maternas in 3 municipalities located in the isolated northwestern highlands of Guatemala—an area with high maternal mortality ratio (636 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births). Casas Maternas are maternal health facilities that provide vital health services, encourage local accountability through staffing local people and provide a safe environment where cultural norms and traditions are respected. Traditional birth attendants are encouraged to bring patients for delivery at the Casas Maternas, where trained staff are present and access to referral care is facilitated.
