Students Learn about Birth Process during Training

This photo won 5th place in the Frontiers in Development: Ending Extreme Poverty photo contest.


USAID’s flagship Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program, led by Jhpiego, supports the HoHoe Midwifery Training school in Ghana. Students experience a simulated birth while Charity Mote (middle, glasses) advises her students through the process. A trained midwife helps ensure a safe delivery, provides essential newborn care, and can deliver comprehensive reproductive health services, ensuring healthy mothers and strong families, helping to eradicate extreme poverty.
