It’s a heart-rending story about life and death and one with the most shocking statistics.

On the average, about 100 women are dying on delivery beds at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi annually, while about four babies die each day.

Officials say the situation has reached a crisis level as women in labour are forced to join long queues.
