ACCESSING SAFE DELIVERIES IN TANZANIA
- To what extent does CEmONC implementation in health centres alter unmet need for emergency obstetrical and newborn services, and change maternal and newborn morbidity & mortality rates in the study health centres?
- How does post-training mentorship, continuous supportive supervision, and continuing education impact on CEmONC delivery in health centres?
We Deliver Innovative Solutions
Training of staff from five health centres in CEmONC and anaesthesia were carried out in various periods
The first group of 20 care providers that included teams of associate clinicians and nurse-midwives
Were conducted from April – October 2016. Assistant medical officers (AMO) were trained in CEmONC
Clinical officers and nurse/ midwives were trained in anaesthesia.
Other training programs were held during implementation of the project.
Post Training Activities
These activities were conducted on quarterly basis and included:
Clinical audits for C-sections
Maternal and deaths and morbidities
Fresh stillbirth admitted with audible fetal heart beats
Early neonatal deaths.
eLearning for HealtH Care Workers
Six eLearning modules were developed and uploaded on stand-alone computers in all supported health centres to reinforce CEmONC skills and knowledge
Computers that did not require continuous internet access since this is not available to most of the health centres. In 2019 the modules were uploaded on the care providers’ mobile phones through mobile Moodle app
The project established mobile based-teleconsultation services in all these facilities. All health centres were equipped with the mobile phones (handsets) enabled with Closed User Group (CUG) service
