Launch of the New Ending Eclampsia Website

The Ending Eclampsia project's website endingeclampsia.org, which launched this week, is just one way the project is enhancing access to, and proper use of, antihypertensives and magnesium sulfate for women with, or at risk of, developing pre-eclampsia and eclampsia (PE/E). Complete with a Discussion Forum, Webinars, Global Coalition signup, and a Resources section that addresses the policy, health systems, and community bottlenecks and outlines opportunities, the website is a one-stop-shop for anyone focusing on reducing preventable deaths related to PE/E.

"This project will use the website as a mechanism for collecting and sharing evidence on effective and low-cost interventions that can save lives. The more users engaging on the Discussion Forum and participating in Webinars, the quicker we can advance the global agenda on pre-eclampsia and eclampsia." - Charlotte Warren, Project Director
