Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH), or excessive bleeding after childbirth, is the single largest cause of maternal death worldwide. In this poster, created for the 2013 Saving Lives at Birth DevelopmentXChange, PATH proposed to develop heat-stable fast-dissolving oxytocin tablets for sublingual delivery, helping to more easily and effectively prevent and treat PPH in low-resource communities. The small, needle-free tablet format eliminates the risks associated with sharps use and disposal. Its heat stability also reduces the need for expensive cold chain transport and storage.
