When a Mother Lives (2013)
23min · Documentary, Short, News · 1 January 2013
What happens to a family, community and country when a mother lives instead of dies? This is the fundamental question at the heart of When a Mother Lives. Set in Kisenyi, Uganda, the story is told through the lives of three women who live in Kisenyi and describes how practical and sustainable action around cervical cancer screening can be taken in places where no screening currently exists. When a Mother Lives was inspired by pairing a tried and true model of community engagement and mobilization with a new and novel leapfrog technology called HPV DNA testing. The video outlines the ASPIRE process as an ecosystem of six distinct yet mutually reinforcing steps: Educate, Mobilize, Collect, Test, Treat, Grow.
