Health Extension Workers for New Mothers in Ethiopia
You're watching UNICEF Television
Chris Niles: At a temporary vaccination site in Wondogenet Ethiopia, mothers gather as a health worker dispenses shots to newborns. 70 women die every day in Ethiopia from complications related to childbirth—mostly because they live in rural areas and can’t get to a clinic. Thanks to UNICEF and its partners that’s rapidly changing—because the clinics are coming to the people. In the past few years nearly 34,000 health extension workers have been trained and sent out to rural areas to advise women that free medical help is available.
Senait Shelemew: We start giving antenatal care to mothers at around four months of pregnancy when they start to feel the baby kicking. If we find a pregnant woman during our door to door services, we advise her to come and use all types of services including antenatal care.
Chris Niles: Nearly 15,000 health posts have been set up throughout the country. Martha started visiting the clinic early in her pregnancy after Senait came to see her at home.
Martha Getachew: When my other children reached three months I would feed them egg yolk. But I have learned from Senait that breastfeeding is enough. Until my daughter is six months I will only breastfeed her.
Chris Niles: Although Martha’s baby is now a healthy infant, she continues to receive follow up care from the health clinic, including information about family planning. She is just one of the thousands of women who have benefited from the program which aims to halve Ethiopia’s maternal mortality rate. This is Chris Niles reporting for UNICEF Television.
