Partnerships and Programs
Together with our global partners we develop and implement innovative solutions for low-resource settings.
Newborns die every day
Mothers die every day giving birth
Of these deaths happen in low-resource settings
Established in 2010, Laerdal Global Health is a not-for-profit company dedicated to helping save lives of mothers and newborns. Working in close collaboration with partners, we develop high impact, low cost solutions aimed at helping save lives. These solutions, implemented by our partners throughout the world, ensure that health workers are better trained, equipped and supported to provide quality care and save mothers and babies at birth.
We will do so by:
Sijabi Afumani’s baby was born premature. Sajabi was worried, would her baby survive? Luckily, the midwives at Lindi Hopital, Tanzania could assist. They knew how to care for small babies through the training done by Jhpeigo and the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare. The midwives helped Saijabi to breastfeed and to keep her baby warm through skin-to-skin. Saijabs baby grew strong and is now healthy and happy child.
Ritka Begum gave birth in Sadipur, Bangladesh. Baby Taiyaba was not breathing on delivery, but luckily, Sakhina, her Skilled Birth Attendant, had attended a Helping Babies Breathe course only two weeks earlier. Thanks to this training and available resuscitation equipment, Taiyaba survived and is thriving.
Baby Agness was not breathing when she was born at Chongwe district hospital in Zambia. But the Mumba family could celebrate a Happy Birthday thanks to Midwife Hamalala having been trained in Helping Babies Breathe, as part of the 50,000 Happy Birthdays project led by the International Confederation of Midwives.
Danieli was born at the Haydom hospital. He was born with meconium and did not breathe. The young nurse used what she had learnt in the Helping Babies Breathe course. She dried and stimulated the baby and used the penguin suction to remove the meconium. But he still did not breathe. She quickly cut the cord and moved him to the resuscitation table where she used the bag-mask and resuscitation monitor. After some minutes Danieli was breathing by himself.
After a long delivery, Baby Dhananjay was born not breathing. Luckily, nurse Suchitra had been trained in Helping Babies Breathe and saved him. Both the mother and the baby got what everyone deserves. A happy birthday.
Mama Regina had parts of her placenta still left in the uterus and started bleeding heavily after delivery. Luckily her midwife had been trained with MamaNatalie to stop the bleeding and remove the remains, so that Regina could live to see her daughter Gloria grow up.
Just after Joyce gave birth to her baby girl, she started to bleed profusely. The midwife, Juliet, realized that Joyce needed help right away or she might die from blood loss. Juliet had been trained in the Helping Mothers Survive - Bleeding After Birth program so she was able to identify the problem quickly and stop the bleeding. Joyce was very thankful - she considered naming her baby after the midwife who saved her.
