e-Learning Courses

Nine multimedia e-learning modules on key maternal and newborn life-saving skills and family planning were developed under the UNFPA/Intel/Jhpiego partnership in 2013.

These innovative, interactive, multi-media e-modules – with built-in assessments – provide training on all major basic emergency obstetric and newborn care and family planning skills for frontline healthcare workers.

The modules use case studies to walk the user through real-life normal and emergency situations that can arise during pregnancy, childbirth and the post-partum period, promoting the competent clinical practice necessary to reduce maternal and newborn mortality. These modules have been reviewed and endorsed by major professional bodies, including WHO, FIGO, ICM and ICN
