    • HBLSS Adaptations
      • All CHW training takes place within “community participatory meetings”- in local language
      • Community meetings prioritized with local Shura/Village Health Committees

      • Communities develop Village emergency transport and communication (mPhone)
      • MOH referral/data forms revised to include HBLSS data: complications, transport time
      • Health Center verify accuracy of assessment by Birthing Teams
    • Lessons Learned
      • Adaptations needed:
      • Cultural
      • Rural/remote areas
      • Security situations
      • Illiterate CHW population: audio in local language and local pictures
      • Gender considerations- male/female roles
      • Community priorities-- according to the highest complication prevalence
    • Lessons Learned- continued
      • Buy-in:

      • CHWs trained in basic MNCH integrated with HBLSS training
      • Training approach - HBLSS participatory meetings –group negotiation skills
      • CHWs need re-freshers, mentoring and supportive supervision
    • Challenges Mozambique Security & remote areas Supportive supervision by local midwives Afghanistan Long distances between villages & health centers

      • (1 per village-30)
      Approximate Cost: $30,000

    • Why HBLSS was chosen?
      • High maternal and newborn mortality rates
      • Lack of access to maternity services
      • Vulnerable, rural populations
      • Women not empowered to make decisions
      • Builds on MNCH platform
      • Easy to integrate messages
      • Participatory family/community approach
