Prevention of Postpartum Hemhorrage Initiative (POPPHI) 2009

This training guide focuses on building the capacity of CHWs and volunteers to use counseling cards to promote the health of women and newborns at home through preventive care, identification of problems, and seeking appropriate care. The guide trains CHWs to identify and interact with women of reproductive age, as well as their families, community and religious leaders, and health care providers at facilities. The toolkit contains: a Reference Manual, Technical Presentations, a Facilitator’s Guide, a Participant’s Notebook, a Clinical Logbook with Learning and Evaluation Checklists, a Guide for Training Community Health Workers/Volunteers to Provide Maternal and Newborn Health Messages and a set of Counseling Cards.
