Description

The vocational training of enough midwives is time-consuming and costly and it might be easier to form the traditional birth attendants in courses and provide the ones who have successfully followed the course, with a small bag with basic necessities. Every pregnant woman should have the possibility to have a medical check-up during her pregnancy, even if there are no signs of illness.
It has been proven that during these check-ups various complications related to pregnancy can be detected and treated early on.
Miserable environmental conditions and ignorance lead to an unhygienic conduct of the pregnant women and therefore contribute to the high illness and death rate.
Since many years the World Health Organization - WHO - and many international, official organizations and governments have started a campaign, with the provision of important funds to improve the care in gynecology and neonatology.
