In 2006, ob/gyn Nina Seigelstein, MD, led a team of medical professionals on what they discovered to be the only gyn mission trip to ever deliver healthcare to women in the Northern Region of Sierra Leone. Over 300 women came from hundreds of miles away to be seen and treated. Sadly, these women had gynecologic conditions that were entirely treatable with the proper medical care. Tragic complications of pregnancy and childbirth routinely occurred but could have been prevented with access to appropriate obstetrical services.
This experience fueled Dr. Seigelstein's determination to create a sustainable infrastructure in Sierra Leone which could successfully function to save women’s lives. Every day. One World Women's Health was born with a well-defined purpose: making women's healthcare a priority in Sierra Leone.
