SLEONE-HEALTH-MATERNITY

A young mother of twins wait for her children to receive vaccinations at the Princess Christian Maternity Hospital in Freetown on April 25, 2016. With the head nurse of the hospital as her sole guardian Isatu will have to face the complications of an early pregnancy and the difficulties of a complex journey back to school. In the wake of the Ebola epidemic, and recovering from a long civil war, Sierra Leone is now confronted with the highest maternal mortality rate in the world with a staggering 3100 maternal deaths per year. UNFPA (United Nation Population Fund) supports the local Ministry of Health with a program that promotes maternal health and family planning. / AFP / MARCO LONGARI (Photo credit should read MARCO LONGARI/AFP via Getty Images)
