The Population Council’s Ending Eclampsia project seeks to expand access to proven, underutilized interventions and commodities for the prevention, early detection, and treatment of pre-eclampsia and eclampsia (PE/E) and to strengthen global partnerships. Ending Eclampsia is working in Nigeria and Bangladesh to assess the level of program activities, gaps, and challenges around prevention and treatment of PE/E and magnesium sulfate (MgSO4). The project will build upon this landscape analysis to expand services to detect and manage PE/E, develop and support implementation of strategic plans for replicating the intervention package, and increase global PE/E evidence shared through knowledge and learning platforms. Ending Eclampsia will contribute to the goal of reducing maternal morbidity and mortality caused by PE/E with the objective of increasing appropriate prevention and treatment of severe PE/E in USAID-priority countries. This fact sheet includes facts about PE/E, Ending Eclampsia’s project development hypothesis, program implementation levels, landscape analysis, and impact.
