Training on Maternal and Reproductive Health

Training on Maternal and Reproductive Health

Uasin Gishu Health County Executive Committee Member Mrs. Everlyne Rotich this evening graced a training on maternal and reproductive health.

Speaking at the event the CEC affirmed the county commitment to improving service delivery by building capacity to its health care workers across the county.

She said that with proper equipping of all GOK facilities across the county the population shall be served well and reduced cases of referral shall be a witness as the healthcare workers shall be expected to undertake the assignment.

The departmental head further stated that the equipping of the facilities would, in turn, reduce deliveries occurring at home and attended by the unskilled birth attendance.

She emphasized that all the level 2 and 3 facilities should be able to perform seven signal functions mainly
1. Parenteral treatment of infection 
2. Parenteral treatment of severe pre-eclampsia 
3. Treatment of Post Partum Haemorrhage,
4. Manual vacuum aspiration of retained products of conception, 
5. Assisted virginal delivery, 
6. Manual removal of placenta
7. Newborn resuscitation and the sub-county facilities perform all the seven as well as surgical capability and blood transfusion.

The CEC also encouraged health care workers to do their work diligently and avoid local arrangements as this would lead to burnouts and compromise care but do their work as appertains the scope of practice.

The one-week emergency obstetric and neonatal training targets all healthcare including doctors, clinical officers and nurses working on maternal health units.

During the training, participants were given pre-test examination and the results were impressive save for a few areas that need improvement.
