In partnership with Birthing Kits Foundation, Australia, HEDEN works with communities experiencing high rate of maternal and newborn mortality, by distributing Birthing Kits to pregnant women in hard-to-reach communities, Traditional Birth Attendants and community health centers. HEDEN integrated the Birthing Kit distribution into her Sweet Mother program in 11 community health Centers in Ifo and Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government.
HEDEN employs a variety of context-specific community-based strategies that engages the communities in health education in other to make lasting impact.
Some of the strategies employed are:
Collaboration with Local Government Authority
Talks and demonstration in community health centers
Training of Traditional Birth Attendants (TBAs)
