East African Countries: Training and capacity building of Health care providers from Faith Based Christian and Muslim organizations

Sarla Chand organized and managed the training of health care providers from five countries in East Africa on maternal, newborn and child health interventions such as focused antenatal care (FANC), Prevention of Mother to Child transmission (PMTCT), Malaria in Pregnancy (MIP) and infection prevention. This training enabled these health care providers to not only improve their skills but also gave them skills to transfer this knowledge and lessons learnt to other providers in their countries. Due to limited resources and/or focus of the government many time the faith-based organizations and their staff are not included in the government organized workshops and seminars and hence this training especially for FBOs was very critical.
