Welcome to Make Women Matter, a campaign, from Marie Stopes International, which highlights the need to improve the lives of women around the world and to put an end to preventable deaths that are the result of pregnancy and childbirth. Every day, an alarming number of communities are losing mothers, wives, daughters, sisters and friends. Most of these deaths are preventable, all that's needed is access to family planning and high quality healthcare.
Make Women Matter brings you five inspirational films told through the personal experiences of women in Sierra Leone, Bangladesh, South Africa and Uganda. Each film offers a unique insight into the life and death challenges faced by girls and women in poorer countries.
Watch the films, explore this website and spread the word: Make Women Matter.
