Stop Mothers Dying!
About 300,000 women and 3 million babies worldwide die each year in pregnancy and childbirth – 90% in the deprived developing world, especially SE Asia and Africa. Most of these deaths are due to delays in provision and access of quality emergency care and could be prevented through fast track training of professionals, raising awareness in the communities and behavioural changes in support of faster provision and access to medical help.
Empowerment through structured training is a low cost, high impact strategic solution.

‘Calmed’ addresses all these issues by sending high quality medical teams to share their skills with their local peers, who will cascade them right down to village level, continuing long after the team departs.
Does it Work?
The CALMED programme training components are evidence-based, aimed at a sustainable increase in the number of skilled professionals and community empowerment. Subsequent Pilot evaluation (in Sikkim and Gujarat, India) validated the CALMED structured training programme, as a low-cost high impact, modular programme. The modules can be adjusted to the local needs and priorities in maternal and new-born mortality reduction, following the core principles of CALMED programme.
