Early Diagnostic for Preeclampsia

The team is developing a urine-based point-of-care early diagnostic test strip which expecting mothers can use at home to self-screen for preeclampsia so they know when to seek medical care. In low and middle-income countries like Uganda, the average woman attends one prenatal care visit when she first realizes she is pregnant and does not return to receive health care until it is time for her to give birth or she is experiencing severe health problems. Without routine prenatal care screenings, knowing when complications are developing and when it becomes critical to seeking medical care is essential to the reducing the detrimental impacts of preeclampsia and eclampsia, and saving thousands of mothers and babies from preventable harm.
