CUGH-Pulitzer 4th Annual Video Competition

In most of the world, the day of birth is a day of celebration, but in the world’s poorest countries, it is a very different situation. This is a short film about the 10,000 Happy Birthday project in Malawi and Zambia by the International Confederation of Midwives (ICM) and sponsored by Laerdal Global Health. The project aims to train 10 000 midwives and other MNCH health care providers in Helping Mothers Survive Bleeding After Birth (HMS-BAB) and Helping Babies Breathe (HBB), facilitate institutionalisation of these skills-training into pre-service and in-service midwifery education in the two countries and build capacity of the midwives associations, AMAMI and MAZ, to conduct projects of a similar nature in the future.
