The Game Changers is a passionate wake-up call to recognize and rectify a daily tragedy and a global injustice. In the developing world, 300,000 women and girls die during childbirth each year--needlessly, and often agonizingly, from preventable causes. From the frontlines in East Africa, obstetrician Dr. Jean Chamberlain Froese (recognized with the Order of Canada for her humanitarian work) and journalist Patricia Paddey share compelling stories about new initiatives that are empowering women and girls, and changing the social fabric. From her firsthand experiences working to save the lives of mothers and babies in the Majority World, "Dr. Jean" (as she is known internationally) realized that more foreign aid would never stop the pointless losses. Only a complete reversal in attitudes could tackle the complex web of causes; only by confronting the problem on many fronts and "changing the whole game" could the most vulnerable be rescued. The Game Changers shares the moving story of how local leaders are penetrating their culture and working to transform families, institutions and society, and offers readers suggestions for practical ways that they, too, can make a difference.
