We are registered Scottish Charity SCO41743- Scotland- Malawi Anaesthesia- a bunch of doctors, midwives and educationalists based in Scotland who have worked in conjunction with NHS Education for Scotland (NES) and clinicians in Malawi, to develop a one-day "skills-and-drills" educational course on clinical management of maternity emergencies that is relevant, cheap to deliver, requires almost zero electricity and no high-tech equipment. We have taught Malawian colleagues how to teach the course to their colleagues, and teach alongside them within the District Hospitals.
In the first hospital where 85% of staff attended the course, maternal mortality in the following year decreased by 70%- far beyond anyone's expectations and simply due to improved skills, teamwork and the snowball effect on morale throughout the whole workforce.
We have been invited by the Ministry of Health in Malawi to roll this teaching out through the whole of Malawi because of the impact of " mass education" on maternal mortality and morale amongst healthcare workers.
Please help us to do this. Every penny counts.
