The Emergency Maternal and Child Healthcare programme is an exciting development for CAI. The project is currently running in Pakistan.

This educational resource will prove invaluable for doctors, nurses and skilled birth attendants in developing countries. It is a product of an initial collaboration between CAI and the Advanced Life Support Group. It is hoped to help the countries to move closer to reaching the Millennium Development Goals related to Maternal and Child Mortality.

By training local instructors in good quality emergency care for mothers, newborn babies and children, we have developed a sustainable intervention.

As part of an agreement with the Government of Pakistan, Hospitals and Primary Care centres will be provided with essential drugs and supplies to enable staff to complete the courses and to allow care to the standard trained to be sustained. CAI initially provides some equipment.

In November 2005, The World Health Organisation (WHO) in Pakistan and the Pakistani Government have taken on responsibility for the spreading of the course across the entire country. They have put together a funding consortium which will lead to the intervention becoming sustainable.

Our collaboration with WHO in Pakistan has led to collaborations with two departments in WHO Geneva, The Essential Health Technology team, and the making Pregnancy Safer Team. We now have plans to introduce what is now known as the ESS EMCH Movement to at least two other countries in 2006.

This programme was made possible by funds raised through the sale of the APLS CD Rom. The CD was developed with Funding from Lions Clubs International.

Many thousands of mothers and children will be helped through the increased skills of local based medical staff, able to deal with emergencies
