Support to Maternal and Newborn Health in the Administrative District of Ituri (en)

This project aims to reduce maternal and infant mortality rates by strengthening health services in the Bunia and Djugu health districts. The project focuses on the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV and the provision of proper care for HIV/AIDS-affected children; training health care providers; educating and informing communities; and strengthening the administration of health care. Activities include: awareness raising activities on preventing the spread of sexually transmitted diseases and HIV/AIDS, and mother-to-child transmission of HIV; updating training materials on obstetric and neonatal care, family planning, and assistance to women who are victims of violence; providing health care supplies and medicines; and rehabilitation of maternity hospitals. The project reaches 48,444 pregnant women, 230 health care workers, and 3,400 newborns with HIV-positive mothers. Oxfam Québec is working in partnership with Union congolaise des organisations des personnes vivant avec le VIH/sida to implement this project. This project is part of Canada's Maternal, Newborn and Child Health commitment.
