Guinea-Bissau: Dying for Treatment is the name of Marco Vernaschi’s reporting project on health care in Guinea-Bissau, supported by the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting

Take a look at his photo essay that uses images to expose what life and death are like for pregnant women in Guinea-Bissau. These photos are some of the most powerful I have ever seen.
