Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is the excessive loss of blood following childbirth, and is
the leading cause of maternal death. The WHO estimates that 25 percent of the 400,000 maternal deaths a year are due to PPH, a risk that is 100 times larger in developing countries.
PPH also thrives on the inability to provide the right blood type and other live-saving essentials such as oxygen and essential drugs.
BLOOD CONNECT platform contains a database with information on hospital blood banks which permits us to easily find and transport the required blood once there is a patient or another hospital in need. We also run an in-house blood bank to compensate when there are shortages in hospitals we have partnership agreements with. To access our services, patients send an SMS or a phone call or use our mobile application requesting a particular blood type, quantity and location. We source this blood from our blood bank or partner hospitals and deliver the blood to them directly on their hospital beds.
