By Medical Aid Films Plus
Somalilandsun – This video, Below, produced in October 2014, follows Medical Aid Films’ work training nurses and midwives in Somaliland through the use of film. In Somaliland, close to 2500 women die each year in childbirth. Working with the Somaliland Nursing and Midwifery Association, we aim to train health workers like Badra on life saving topics such as neo-natal resuscitation, management of post-partum haemorrage, and identifying warning signs in pregnancy. Our films are free to use, and are currently distributed to over 1000 partners worldwide.
Many thanks to Fouzia Mohamed Ismail and the Somaliland Nursing and Midwifery Association, for their help in making this film and for the incredible work they do every day to help more women have a safe pregnancy and a healthy child. Thank you also to the Pharo Foundation.
