Uganda Dangerous Childbirth

In this photo taken Tuesday, June 5, 2012, Ugandan women walk out of the Constitutional Court disappointed after losing a case against the government over maternal deaths during childbirth, prior to taking the issue further to the Supreme Court, in the capital Kampala, Uganda. More than 100 women die during childbirth each week in Uganda, a heartbreaking statistic that has energized activists to go to the Supreme Court in a bid to force the government to put more resources toward maternal health care to prevent the wave of deaths. Writing on t-shirts in English and Swahili reads “Not another needless death: Government stop deaths of mothers now”. (AP Photo/Stephen Wandera)
