Health Mom, Healthy Babies Project
This project focuses on programs to decrease the rate of infant morbidity and mortality. Sudan has one of the highest infant mortality rates in the world. So far we have handed out over two thousand birth kits.
A birth kits consists of gauze, scissors, disinfectant, soap, gloves, and string, bandage and immunization cards.Most women do not have access to health care facilities and give birth at home. We have also facilitated workshops that educate prevention of HIV transmission from mother to child. We want to continue distributing birth kits and educating women.
We also want to train women to be traditional birth attendants and further education for women, in terms of prenatal care.
