Women have also been threatened by the near collapse of the fragile health infrastructure: medical facilities are overwhelmed and under-resourced, many private hospitals are closed and public hospitals are no longer dealing with non-Ebola cases. Consequently, there is little in the way of healthcare provision for more common conditions such as malaria or typhoid.
Sierra Leone has one of the world’s highest maternal mortality rates: 890 of every 100,000 women die from pregnancy-related causes. Thanks to the national free healthcare initiative (for pregnant women, lactating mothers and children under five), we had made some strides in getting pregnant women to move away from using traditional birth attendants.

Sadly, there is now a huge decrease in the numbers of women going to clinics for antenatal care and deliveries. Statistics are hard to come by, due to limitations on movement, but there is a real risk that women who are too afraid to seek medical care are instead dying at home from complications in childbirth. Meanwhile, access to family planning services is limited. This means that the meagre gains are being further eroded.

Feminist Wednesday, 10/15/14, 8-10am CST

morningamp:

What’s Your Damage?: The AMp pulls together two seemingly disparate stories, the death threats associated with #GamerGate and the resistance to marriage equality in conservative circles, and looks at the ways people fight a losing ideological battle and why desperate times call for desperate measures.

Milk: Monica Eng reports on the USDA’s decision to only provide skim or 1% milk as part of WIC, the food program focused on mothers and children. This follows the same change in the National School Lunch program last year. Eng asks whether a low-fat diet is the best solution to combatting childhood obesity.

Council of Feminist Thought: The inimitable Mikki Kendall is here to ask why the h-e-double hockey sticks upskirt photos are an expression of free speech, why we are sooooo freaked out by Ebola, , and why tech companies would offer to freeze eggs to facilitate family care when they could maybe provide on-site daycare?
