More Happy Birthdays
The More Happy Birthdays (Rwanda) project, funded by Latter-day Saint Charities (LDSC) builds on the success of the 50,000 and 10,000 Happy Birthdays projects and will enable more midwives and other providers to continue saving lives at birth. The Rwanda Association of Midwives will train providers using the Helping Mothers Survive (Jhpiego) and Helping Babies Survive (American Academy of Pediatrics) suite of programmes. The innovative Safe Delivery App (SDA) will be included in the project to complement the training and support workplace learning with short, frequent practice sessions which will improve quality of care. ICM’s partner, Maternity Foundation has developed a robust digital monitoring and evaluation system which informs adjustments to project activities and provides evidence for the improved clinical practice and health outcomes of this approach. The More Happy Birthdays project is being implemented from 15 August 2021 to 15 April 2022.
