Nepal: Strengthening the Clinical Training System for Skilled Birth Attendants

Kathmandu, Nepal


The Jhpiego project entitled Strengthening the Nick Simons Institute’s (NSI) Clinical Training System for Skilled Birth Attendants began in 2007. The mission of NSI, the donor, is to train and support skilled, compassionate rural health care workers in Nepal. Jhpiego’s partners in this project are NSI training sites, including Tansen Hospital and Bharatpur Hospital. Jhpiego is providing technical assistance to NSI in its efforts to strengthen competency-based clinical training systems and partners’ training sites to produce skilled birth attendants. The goal is to develop at least one new in-service training site for these health care providers.

About Jhpiego: For nearly 40 years, Jhpiego, (pronounced "ja-pie-go"), has empowered front-line health workers by designing and implementing simple, low-cost, hands-on solutions that strengthen the delivery of health care services, following the household-to-hospital continuum of care. We partner with community- to national-level organizations to build sustainable, local capacity through advocacy, policy and guidelines development, and quality and performance improvement approaches.
