Imagine being nine months pregnant and taken to a hospital. The doctor tells you they must do an emergency caesarean section. They must begin immediately, yet they have no sutures nor needles available to finish the operation. They start anyway. Your baby is born but she is not breathing. The hospital has no emergency equipment nor trained staff to deal with her.
