Lifesaving Project Update

Dear Friends,
The Lifesaving Intervention project supports pregnant women and health workers to reduce maternal and child mortality in rural communities. The project which was launched in 2020 in 3 communities now is proudly implemented in over 40 remote communities in Northeast Nigeria with support from GlobalGiving. This project supports pregnant women with clean birth kits to ensure clean and safe delivery, and we train birth attendants on basic lifesaving skills to support pregnant women. We also support pregnant women with prenatal medicines and micronutrients to ensure healthy pregnancy. To date, we have distributed 855 birth kits saving 855 mothers with their newborn babies. We have trained 160 home health volunteers (birth attendants), and we have distributed over 118,000 doses of prenatal micronutrients to pregnant women. Through this project we have also dewormed over 60,000 under-five children and have also supported them with vitamin A supplements to ensure strong immunity and good vision. We have also, trained additional 100 community health workers in the newly 20 communities on our free-for-use mobile technology to promote improved maternal and neonatal health practices in these remote communities in collaboration with the CHIIN (Critical Healthcare Information Integration Network).The mHealth technology, a US-based nonprofit organization in collaboration with Rural Health Mission
Nigeria to help community health workers provide high-quality healthcare in remote communities. The CHIIN platform is an SMS-based, free-for-use mHealth medical reference tool that gives CHWs access to relevant medical information based on important considerations and best practices in sexual health and family planning, pregnancy, labor and delivery, and postnatal mother and infant care, without the need to use the internet. In addition, the tool contains a database of information on the risk factors, symptoms, diagnoses, management strategy, drug information, and complications of nearly 100 context-relevant infectious and noncommunicable diseases. This technology is user friendly to as it does not require the internet nor smartphone to function. It works on any mobile phone that can send and receive SMS even in the remotest community. Users are not charged for sending and receiving any information on this platform. This technology eliminates the cost of data to
browse the internet, the time taken searching for information on practice manuals or guides. It’s a friendly job aid for community health practitioners to provide high-quality care in low-resource settings. With this support from the CHIIN team, it’s believe that the lifesaving intervention project will double its impact and it will also accelerate its broader vision of reducing maternal, child, and neonatal mortality in remote communities in Nigeria. This year, we have supported additional 500 pregnant women with the lifesaving birth kits and we hope to support 1000 pregnant women by December 2022. We have trained 100 home health volunteers we are hopeful to train another 200 by December 2022. Without your support, all these achievement wouldn’t have been possible. We very hopeful of your continues support of this project.
