IATI Identifier: GB-CHC-1129603-GPAF-INN-050
The project will improve maternal health for over 2,000 women in a remote province of Afghanistan. Both women and men from over 100 local communities will receive Birth and Life Saving Skills (BLiSS) training, which teaches basic lessons on how to improve the health and survival of mothers and babies. By the end of the project we expect to see 27% more women accessing antenatal care and other health services, hygienic births with 15% more births attended by skilled health personnel, better postnatal practices such as breastfeeding within the first hour, and 45% more men positively engaging with maternal health issues.;
