What If the Nurse Delivers Your Baby With Dirty Hands?
Lack of safe water is a growing problem everywhere. In poorer countries, the risk is massive. The World Health Organization found that in Nigeria - Africa's most populous nation - nearly 30 percent of health facilities don't have safe water and toilets. A WaterAid survey showed half the delivery rooms in health clinics don't even have place to wash hands. Every year, 40,000 Nigerian mothers die in childbirth, and infection is the second largest cause, after excessive bleeding. Clean water could save many of those mothers, as well as their babies.
