Post Training Follow- up for Skilled Birth Attendants: Review of Implementation Experiences -September 2009
PDF File Size: 89 KB | Download   
In 2006 the Government of Nepal (GoN) approved the National Policy on Skilled Birth Attendants, in line with intern ational recognition of the critical role of the Skilled Birth Attendant (SBA) in reducing maternal mortality. This policy used the standard international definition of an SBA as a qualified doctor, nurse or midwife who has received specific training in the defined SBA core skills. In Nepal this includes Auxiliary Nurse Midwives (ANM), who, with nurses, are the main provider s of safe delivery and emergency obstetric care services in rural areas. Following this, t he National In - Service Training Strategy for Skilled Birth Attendants was approved and implementation initiated in 2007. This strategy outlines approaches for achieving the enormous task of training around 5,000 SBAs required by 2012 in order to meet the Millennium Development Goal target of 60% of all births attended by an SBA by 2015. Curricula and training materials were developed for courses ranging from 15 to 60 days to cater for the differing needs of doctors, nurses and ANMs with and without previous midwifery training. Currently there are 15 functioning SBA training sites around the country, each with a team of trainers and the capacity to provide didactic teaching with model practice and supervised clinical practice. To date over 1,000 SBAs have received training, at least two from each of the 75 districts and with a focus on those with external project support and/or new infrastructure . Nurses and ANMs based in peripheral health facilities are a priority as they have previously received little support and yet are the front line service providers for needy rural women.
