The Postpartum Hemorrhage Prevention and Treatment Website provides a forum for joint information sharing and learning between organizations and individuals working on the prevention and treatment of postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) in developing countries. The website contains resources posted under the Prevention of Postpartum Hemorrhage Initiative (POPPHI) and includes information and links to a range of organizations working on PPH issues.

The website is hosted by PATH with support from The Oxytocin Initiative Project, and builds on the Postpartum Hemorrhage Prevention website established under the USAID-funded POPPHI project. A consortium of organizations, listed on the “About” page, is working together to ensure that events and resources of interest will be posted on the website.
