Maternal death rates in South Sudan one of world's highest

Written by 

There are very few maternal healthcare clinics left in a country that has been torn by five years of civil war, and many of the existing facilities are poorly equipped.

South Sudan has one of the world's highest rates of women dying in childbirth.

And many of those who survive suffer painful injuries with long-lasting effects, that are entirely preventable.

But after five years of war, medical facilities and treatment are in short supply.

Al Jazeera's Hiba Morgan reports from Juba.
