Improving Maternal, Newborn and Child Health in Uganda
This short film highlights how quality improvement methodology has positively impacted maternal, newborn and child health services in Uganda.
Since 2010, the USAID Health Care Improvement Project (HCI) has provided technical assistance to the Ministry of Health to improve care by training Village Health Teams (VHTs) in essential newborn care and Helping Babies Breathe (HBB) newborn resuscitation techniques, training teams of providers in clinical aspects of care and in quality improvement, and promoting peer-to-peer learning.
The film features health workers and village health members sharing their accounts of how improvement methods have empowered them to better support mothers in their communities. The video also features insights from Ministry of Health staff on how improvement methodology has introduced significant changes that are being shared with other facilities.
