lessons learned
Lessons learned
  • Integration has been a successful way to quickly train and orient a large number of health workers and community health workers (HEWs) on HBB in Ethiopia.
  • Having a strong governmental leadership with close collaboration among partners is the only way to make changes to newborn survival in a large country with limited funding sources.
  • Making training material and resuscitation equipment available has helped the HBB rollout.
  • Early data shows that the training on HBB among HWs has improved their skills.
  • Still only around 10% of deliveries are conducted in health facilities, and only 1% of the HEW have the opportunity to conduct deliveries.
  • Data on newborns not yet systematically collected as current HMIS does not fully address NB issues
  • FMoH
  • WHO
  • ICAP – Ethiopia
