Training aims to educate families

National

WORLD Vision PNG has trained 19 women and a man in Morobe in time targeted counselling (TTC) that would enable them to attend to pregnant women in their villages.
The participants from Nawaeb and Markham, were trained to educate families to understand the critical issues women endured during pregnancy and child birth.
Training facilitator Francesca Yagama said that family support was crucial during pregnancy and that required families to provide support.
Yagama said that pregnant women needed to understand the importance of being pregnant, their related needs and pains, nutrition, newborn care, family planning, child immunisation, warning signs and symptoms.
The participants, were provided with key information that pregnant women received at antenatal clinics.
“The aim was to educate family households to be aware of the importance of pregnancy and child birth,” Yagama said.
“That will also ensure them to assist pregnant mothers and offer needed support.”
Provincial health adviser Micah Yawing, disease control coordinator Edwin Benny and family health deputy coordinator Lina Japu attended the graduation at Limki.
Japu commended World Vision for being a key partner in implementing many health programmes.
