Rural Maternal Care Project Starts With Visit to Malawi

September 2012

This first visit to Malawi was completed last week as part of the three year project to improve rural maternal care in Malawi.

This project will improve the maternal and neonatal health of the rural population served by Nkhoma Hospital, and its 9 health centres, by linking together patient held paper records (health passports) with an electronic record system to create a continuum of care from pregnancy to delivery. This will ensure that essential health interventions are carried out and all health staff (in hospital and in community) share essential life saving information.
