The project focuses on the training of Community Health Nurses in Emergency deliveries in the Hohoe Municipality of the Volta Region. The need to train the Community health nurses in Emergency delivery's stems from the unavailability of professional midwives in communities. The Community health nurses after their training will carry our Maternal and Child Health activities in their communities in order to ensure safe delivery of children and mothers.

Maternal mortality refers to those deaths which are caused by complications due to pregnancy or childbirth. These complications may be experienced during pregnancy or delivery itself, or may occur up to 42 days following childbirth. For each woman who succumbs to maternal death, many more will suffer injuries, infections, and disabilities brought about by pregnancy or childbirth complications, such as obstetrics fistula. In most cases, however, maternal mortality and disability can be prevented


Since most maternal deaths occur during delivery and postpartum period, emergency obstetric care, skilled birth attendants, postpartum care, and transportation to medical facilities if complications arise are all necessary components of strategies to reduce maternal mortality. The project specifically aims to improve the quality of maternal and child care at the primary level of health care (community level and health posts). The concept is to build the capacity of both community health Nurses.
