Helping Babies Breathe: Neonatal Resuscitative Teaching to Midwives in Ghana, West Africa
Research paper
Description: 
The American Academy of Pediatrics designed Helping Babies Breathe (HBB), an educational program for low-resource areas. This project implemented a modified HBB program to teach neonatal resuscitation skills to four midwives in rural Ghana. The midwives averaged pre-test scores of (a) 39.2%, (b) 37.5% and post test scores of (a) 71.4%, (b) 83.7%. This train-the-trainer framework has resulted in one midwife continuing the teaching to hospitals in the region.
