A training package designed to train health care providers in the management of common obstetric and newborn complications using a competency based ‘skills and drills’ approach is used in Bangladesh and India as one of the interventions under the ‘Making it Happen’ programme. The programme was commenced in 2009 and aims to reduce maternal and newborn mortality and morbidity by improving health care providers’ capacity to deliver Essential (Emergency) Obstetric and Newborn Care (EOC&NC)thus increasing the availability and quality of these services.
Preliminary results indicate that the training package has
improved knowledge and skills of trained health care providers and ensures more signal functions of EOC are provided.
Keywords essential obstetric care, evaluation of training.
