Helping Mothers and Babies Survive Together
For five years, Project C.U.R.E. has been making a significant impact in the survival of newborns alongside our international partners by training midwives, nurses and birth attendants through the Helping Babies Survive suite of modules developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics curriculum. Our focus has been on developing local Master Trainers who continue training nurses and midwives and updating skills in their facilities. Unlike hospitals in the United States, birth attendants in low-resource settings, are responsible for both the baby and mother’s health. Every day, approximately 830 women die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth. 99% of all maternal deaths occur in developing countries. For this reason, Project C.U.R.E. is proud to announce the implementation of the Helping Mothers Survive suite of modules developed by Jhpiego to reduce maternal mortality so that one day babies will not have to survive without their mother.
