Chronic violence and neglect in parts of northeastern Uganda's Karamoja region means 70 percent of the population has no access to any kind of health care. This affects women the most - maternal mortality rates here are 75 percent higher than the national average. MSF goals in Karamoja's Kaabong district are to strengthen government health services and to reach people who otherwise can't get to health facilities.
