Liberian Nurses Learn Danger Signs
Check out this article featured on The Guardian:
In Liberia, nurses are learning to identify danger signs to better serve their patients. This article discusses an international health organization named Jhipego, which is an affiliate of Johns Hopkins University in Maryland. The organization provided safety training during the Ebola outbreak and now has begun training a wider array of medical staff. At the Well Baby clinic in Buchananare, nurses are taught how to streamline care and ideally take care of the needs of a mother and her baby in one visit to ensure adequate health care is provided. Many of the women travel long distances so the focus on one health visit will reduce the amount of mothers who are told to come back another day and are never able to make it to the clinic again.
