Updated IMNCI guidelines and training improve efficacy and effectiveness of basic health staff in northern Shan


This story follows Daw Ng Kham Noom, a midwife with 4 years of experience at the Man Phai Sub-Center in Mong Yai Township, following the Basic Health Staff (BHS) cascade training in Mong Yai. Daw Ng Kham believes that the training helped her improve her capacity in reducing neonatal, infant, and under-5 child mortality rates and that the updated forms and hand bills have also improved her skills in disease classification and effective treatment referral. Follow-up supervisions further reinforced the skills and knowledge of the BHS staff on IMNCI practices-a life-saving child health and newborn training for health staff in Burma. JSI, MCSP, 2018.
