In the summer of 2018 Rozina* was the first baby to be born in Save the Children’s new Primary Health Care Centre (PHCC) in a Rohingya refugee camp, serving a population of 20,000 for free. These services can mean the difference between life and death for the mother and/or the baby. That’s because many Rohingya mothers give birth at home where the environment isn’t sterilised with little access to clean water. Giving birth in our PHCC means mothers also have access to breast-feeding support and post-natal vaccines, not to mention swift assistance by trained midwives and doctors in case of complications. Our 20-bed PHCC is open 24/7 and we see up to 200 patients every day.
