It will provide quality simulation-based healthcare training to service providers. Also, it would provide innovative life-saving medical tools to facilities in low-resource settings to enhance their care.
In India, quality delivery and newborn care is not easily accessible or affordable. At least 1 woman and 3 newborns die every 5 minutes because of preventable causes. Most of these deaths are due to lack of properly trained healthcare workers adept at dealing with emergencies and complications. Many clinics lack basic facilities like proper lighting, resuscitation aids, & post-delivery care tools. This leads to compromised quality of care, leading to avoidable deaths.
HLFPPT has partnered with Laerdal Medical India Private Ltd. to improve the quality of care by enhancing healthcare provider skills through simulation-based trainings as well as to strengthen facilities with life-saving tools in India.
Healthcare providers as well as facilities are better trained and equipped to deliver quality care resulting in better survival outcomes for both mothers and newborns.
We are currently expecting delays in getting funds to this project due to new regulatory requirements that impact GlobalGiving's ability to disburse to organizations in India. GlobalGiving is working hard to address the issue. Donations to this project will be disbursed as quickly as possible.
