This report illustrates the small positive changes that can grow into big ones. It’s a story about Shawarna Mohammed, a young woman from Kpalbe in Northern Ghana. She featured in ‘The Lights Have Gone Out Again’, the documentary that inspired the Maternal Health Channel Television Series, when she was fearful about her impending delivery as she had previously lost her child. We go back four years later to witness changes in the maternal health care services there.

"The Lights Have Gone Out Again" is a moving investigation into the high incidence of maternal deaths in Ghana. Filmed in diverse locations across Ghana, it tells powerful stories about the challenges that women confront as they seek care from the health services. It features key advocates, policy makers and leading health practitioners and highlights issues that hitherto had not featured highly in the national health debate.
