Rural women in most Nigerian state don't have access to obstetricians or other trained health care workers. Many live in rugged localities and villages far from health facilities. For rural families with limited resources, traditional birth attendants (TBAs) have played a vital role in helping women deliver their babies. Yet TBAs traditionally receive no formal training or knowledge of safe labor and delivery practices, and have little to no understanding of mother-to-child HIV transmission.
We hope to develop unique mobile training platform in Nigeria (althogh,it will be accessibleto all) that will benefits everyone(pregnant women,mothers, babies and care givers ), creating a stronger health system, building TBA skills, and reducing HIV transmission and other childbirth related problems.

@ Laureto, I have a pregnancy, maternal and child care support group on facebook. I am also planning to connect with TBA's in my community. I have lots of them around and still gathering my health volunteer team to work on the project.
