ABC News' Maternal Health Challenge seeks entries! Deadline April 29

Around the world, 350,000 women continue to die each year of complications due to childbirth. In the vast majority of cases, women are dying of preventable causes: severe bleeding, infection, obstructed labor and a host of other problems that can be averted with skilled care and improved technology.

A number of NCIIA's grantees have developed truly innovative technologies to address complications like jaundice, preeclampsia, and SIDS. Here's a chance to advance your lifesaving ideas!

ABC News' Be the Change: Save a Life, the Duke Global Health Institute, and The Lemelson Foundation have announced the Maternal Health Challenge for university students. The challenge encourages students from around the world to submit a five-minute video explaining their big idea for improving maternal health. The winner receives $10,000.
