MedGlobal's Response

PAKISTAN

MEDICAL MISSION, NOVEMBER 2019

Pakistan ranks in the top 10% of countries with the worst infant mortality rates worldwide.  Less than 50% of women receive the recommended minimum antenatal care of at least 4 visits during pregnancy.  MedGlobal teamed up with the Indus Health Network, a not-for-profit organization in Pakistan which provides free healthcare that is accessible to all. 

MedGlobal focused on creating an education and training program teaching state-of-the-art portable ultrasound to physicians, nurses, and midwives.  To address the high infant mortality rate, we taught over 100 participants Helping babies Breathe, a course in which birth attendants develop skills they can utilize within the first minutes of life, including identification of a baby in danger and administration of life-saving measures. These local master trainers have gone on to teach multiple courses locally, further building capacity in rural areas.  Finally, we developed our first Empathy and Compassion Training course where over 500 trainees attended.
