Education and Training

As the demand for Maternal Healthcare rises, so too does the need for trained professionals.

In remote health centers and hospitals, nurses, nurse-midwives, and health officers deliver babies.

These medical providers are also in short supply and often poorly trained.

In 2016, VHP beta tested a model for educating all health center providers in neonatal resuscitation and obstetric care.

Through our Skill-Building for Rural Health Care Providers Program, we have trained 120 nurse-midwives and 260 providers. 

While implementing these programs, we found a severe shortage of nurse midwives, leading us to create a Nurse-Midwife Scholarship Program. Through this program, we have graduated seven nurse midwives, and ten are in training.

Our training programs aim to build a strong and confident rural workforce that is fully equipped to provide skilled assistance at the time of delivery.
