Mentoring Village Birth Assistants in PNG

In January 2020 a small team consisting of a GP, a Midwife / Registered Nurse, and a logistics person, conducted health clinics and mentoring of health care workers and volunteers in four villages of Oro Provence, Papua New Guinea.

Village Birth Assistants (VBA's) who had attended education sessions with the No Roads Health team the previous year, were encouraged to assist in the clinic which they willingly did.

Onsite education was conducted with the Community Health Workers (CHW’s) and the VBA’s to reinforce previous learnings and give them the opportunity for some one-on-one experience.

It also enabled the pregnant women attending the clinic to build rapport with the VBA’s as well as the CHW’s in their local community.

It was a fantastic experience for everyone involved and provided the opportunity to deliver better health outcomes for mothers and babies for the long-term.
