Marco Vernaschi
, whom I raved about here earlier for his photo essays on the drug war in Guinea-Bissau, is back with another collection on the dangers of child birth there. High maternal mortality rates, counterfeit medications and poor sanitary conditions plague the crumbling West African nation.

And for a fascinating look inside Guinea Bissau, read his diary from his travels there.
