Shipping container hospital helps mothers at risk in Haiti
Giving birth in Haiti is risky. It has the highest maternal death rate in the western hemisphere and only a quarter of births are supervised by skilled medics.
A new maternity hospital built entirely out of shipping containers, by Medecins Sans Frontieres, is providing specialist care for mothers and babies at risk.
