Palouge II – Education of Health Advisors

South Sudan has the highest maternal mortality rate in the world: for every 100,000 births, 2054 mothers die every year. In cooperation with the doctors in South Sudan, Bigent UG developed a concept that can reduce the maternal mortality rate to half within 3 years. The key to success: Every village should have a health advisor in the future. Six of them have already finished their education and training – with success.

The most important tool to reduce the maternal mortality rate is health education combined with a system between health advisors and hospitals for complications during pregnancy or birth.
Another primary goal is to improve the health care system within the villages by educating health advisors. To ensure the success of future awareness and educational campaigns, audio-visual media shall be developed for the majority of illiterate people.
Prevention screening, guiding media programs and efficient treatment in the hospital provides a realistic solution towards halving the maternal mortality rate in the Upper Nil Region in a reasonable timely manner.
