Safe Motherhood

Developing countries, including Zambia, face the highest burden of maternal, fetal, and neonatal deaths. CIDRZ contributes to the Zambian government’s efforts to reduce maternal mortality through improving obstetric and delivery care.

As a Saving Mothers, Giving Life implementing partner, CIDRZ has supported Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care (EmONC)  training and mentorship of healthcare providers in Zambia’s Eastern Province.

CIDRZ participated in a U.S. Government-funded Global Network EmONC trial where more than 300 healthcare providers were trained in EmONC skills, Home-Based Lifesaving Skills, and community mobilisation for facilities deliveries resulting in more than 5,000 births being attended by trained providers.
