Maternal mental health in conflict-affected populations

Maternal mental health in post-conflict Uganda:

The Peter C. Alderman Foundation (PCAF) (www.petercaldermanfoundation.org) was established to honor the memory of Peter Alderman, who was killed in the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11th 2001. PCAF works with governments and other public service providers to strengthen mental health services for conflict-affected populations in Uganda, Kenya, and Cambodia. In Uganda, it supports multi-disciplinary teams in four sites. At one of these sites, Soroti, a pilot program is aimed at developing a community-based stepped care model to support the mental health of women who are pregnant, or who have recently given birth. This is a formative, mixed methods pilot study, aimed at consulting with health system stakeholders, selecting an intervention, building capacity, and conducting a first trial run of the intervention.
