One of MCSP’s three objectives in DR Congo was to improve maternal and newborn survival through the provision of quality in-service training and pre-service education on key maternal and newborn health and postpartum family planning (PPFP) interventions. The Program’s approach to human capacity development focused on developing individual health worker knowledge and skills through experience and practice, as well as improving the processes and performance of individuals and teams.
In February 2018, MCSP began activities to establish a model training center (MTC) at Kintambo General Hospital to reinforce skills and train providers in maternal, newborn, and PPFP care. Two years after opening the MTC, it was functioning under a management and technical committee of hospital staff and representatives of the country’s Ministry of Health (MOH), with technical support from MCSP.
This six-page brief provides background on choosing and rehabilitating the site, as well as training staff and establishing quality assurance. It illuminates how MCSP integrated the Clean Clinic Approach at the site, and next steps for the facility.
The brief is also available in French.
