Training Traditional Birth Attendants

We’re now running one or two programmes a year, in which we train village women in modern maternity care. We’re tackling two core problems, the sky high infant mortality rates (6%) in the Delta, and the desperate shortage of trained midwives. In November 2016 our UK midwives, Frances and Lou, together with our Myanmar health team, trained some 50 locals (including one man!) in our area near Thar Paung in the North Delta. The programme was extremely successful, and we’ll do a refresher for these TBAs, plus training for some new ones, in September 2017.
