About the project
The Rotary club of Vacoas has a plan to set up a dedicated intensive care unit (OICU) for high risk pregnant women in Mauritius. The primary objective is to provide support in order to ensure improved access to skilled birth attendance, quality reproductive health services, emergency obstetric care and postnatal care for mothers. Women with high risk pregnancies require specialised close monitoring and intensive care. Setting up of an obstetric ICU can help ensure better care and management for patients as well as ensure their privacy and dignity. 

About the Competition

The competition is to raise funding for the above project.

This is the first time that such a competition is being held here. The panel of judges consists of local professional and international photographers who will judge the submitted photos individually.
