In many countries around the world maternal health workers deliver care in areas where there are no policy makers, no four-wheel drive vehicles and no blood banks. 

Sister tells the story behind the statistics by following three health workers from Ethiopia, Cambodia and Haiti, exploring how they find meaning while working under difficult circumstances and revealing that maternal and newborn death are a human rights issue.

Their stories reveal the strategies in place to improve maternal health and address the crisis in maternal and newborn mortality to show when the strategies work, when they don’t work and how the lack of transport, communication and education create weak links along the way.
