Belay, an Ethiopian Physical Therapist, is seeking support for an educational program to train PT’s in the care of women during pregnancy and post-partum. Donate to this project and see the ripple effect physical therapy training can cause.

Women across the world suffer from numerous types of pregnancy related conditions that can be successfully addressed through physical therapy. These treatable conditions such as, abdominal weakness, back pain and urinary incontinence, affect women’s quality of life, reduce their presence as productive members of their communities, and can have lifelong consequences.  

Unfortunately, due to limited awareness and training of Ethiopian doctors and physical therapists, Ethiopian women are not likely to have access to physical therapy treatment for their pregnancy related conditions, and thus continue to suffer unnecessarily.

With your support, the Global Women’s Health Initiative can plug that resource gap. Through the Belay Project, GWHI will both train local physical therapists to address Ethiopian women’s pregnancy related conditions and inform local physicians and midwifes about the benefits of physical therapy.

Your donation will directly fund the creation of training manuals and the facilitation of PT training and mentorship programs.  As a result, Ethiopian women will have access to physical therapy for common pregnancy related conditions. Through physical therapy, women will have greater control of their bodies, empowering them during and post pregnancy to be more productive in their community - Your donation can be the push that sends these ripples outward. Thank you for your support!
