Thu Jan 11th, 2018 - Ekiti

An American-based philanthropic organisation, Project C.U.R.E., in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), USAID and Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti, ABUAD, will January 17, 2018 hold a one-day Train-the-Trainers programme tagged: ‘Helping Babies Breathe’, (HBB) in support of the University’s ultra-modern 400-bed Multi System Hospital and in honour of Yeye Aare Modupe Babalola, the wife of ABUAD’s founder, Aare Afe Babalola, SAN.

The training, which will be anchored by Ms. Jennifer Manhoff and Ms. Amy Greene will zero in on the availability of skilled birth attendants at birth, assessment of every baby, temperature support, stimulation to breathe and assisted ventilation as needed within the first minute of birth otherwise known as the “golden minute” after birth.

The one-day training programme for women, nurses, midwives and doctors as well as allied medical professionals is powered by Project C.U.R.E., WHO and USAID, as well as ABUAD and meant to ensure that babies don’t die within the first minute after birth, otherwise known as the “golden minute.”
