Summary

Health workers are critical to the health and survival of mothers and newborns in Nepal. They are selected within the community and are trained to assess, classify, and treat or refer children with signs of infection, disease and other life-threatening conditions.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Every year in Nepal, 37,000 newborns and young children die from largely preventable causes.

How will this project solve this problem?

Nepal has passed the halfway mark in the race to end child deaths. Training more frontline health workers will save even more young lives. Save the Children’s role in the project was to provide evidence of how effective these interventions could be, give technical assistance and help shape the government’s policy – along with providing direct training in one district. Nepal is on track to meet MDG 4 –reducing childhood mortality by two-thirds by 2015.

Potential Long Term Impact

Nepal has passed the halfway mark in the race to end child deaths. Training more frontline health workers will save even more young lives. The Nepalese government has rolled out the training across 10 districts and has demonstrated its commitment to saving the lives of newborns by providing effective support and incentives for these volunteers.
