Young mothers still face health education barriers!

By Mugisha Leonard | Project Leader

Mothers at Unyama receiving health education
Mothers at Unyama receiving health education

Worldwide, many newborns die in the first month of life, with most deaths happening in low/middle-income countries including Uganda. Families’ use of evidence-based newborn care practices in the home and timely care-seeking for illness can save newborn lives. Postnatal education is an important investment to improve families’ use of evidence-based newborn care practices, yet there are gaps in the literature on postnatal education programmes that have been evaluated to date.

In remote communities like Unyama and Agonga in which we operate, postnatal education programmes for parents have been shown to reduce newborn illness and death by improving hygienic umbilical cord care, breastfeeding and appropriate nutritional intake. However, our clinics in Gulu are still short of the necessary tools and equipment to ensure that such programs run smoothly. The small tent at Unyama health facility can no longer accommodate the big number of mothers in their sessions. Printing educational brochures on a weekly basis has also become costly.

We are grateful to you our partner for trusting in KCIU and sacrificing alot for the betterment of health for the mothers in the community. We encourage you to keep supporting our project and if you can, please send in a donation.
