In 2008, a joint project to pilot community-based distribution of misoprostol for the prevention of PPH was begun in Bangladesh. The partners were the National PPH Prevention Task Force, the Directorate General of Health Services, the Directorate General of Family Planning, and the Mayer Hashi Project. The objective was to have health and family planning field workers from the government and from nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) distribute misoprostol tablets to pregnant women in Tangail District, central Bangladesh, to assess the approach’s effectiveness, and to gather lessons learned and provide recommendations for national scale-up.
