Strengthening the Capacity of Indian HCPs in Gestational Diabetes Care, WDF22-1873

WDF 22-1873
To strengthen integration of GDM into maternal health care through capacity building of health care providers and digital health solutions.

Objectives

The project will support ongoing efforts by the Govt. of India to strengthen the provision of antenatal (ANC) and Gestational Diabetes (GDM) care by deploying cost-effective technology and IT-based solutions to mainstream the knowledge and skills.

Approach

Leveraging Maternity Foundation’s existing presence and reach in India, and their digital learning tool for skilled birth attendants: the Safe Delivery App. This project will focus specifically on strengthening ANC and the integration of GDM care.

Activities will include the development of new clinical content on ANC and GDM, which will be added to the Safe Delivery App in English and Hindi. 

Orientation trainings and more in-depth ToT trainings will be conducted for health care workers (HCW) and students in two aspirational districts of Jharkhand State. The GDM and ANC modules will be institutionalised into the curriculum for nurses.

To enhance the Safe Delivery App, and continue to ensure broad reach, this project will also seek to enhance the user experience by adding new functionalities. Lastly, the project will have a strong focus on assessing and documenting the impact of activities.

Expected results

  • Two new modules for ANC and GDM created
  • 50 Master trainers in place
  • 1000 in-service HCWs will have been reached
  • 500 pre-service students will have been orientated on the Safe Delivery App and ANC and GDM modules
  • 15% increase in knowledge of ANC and GDM amongst sample of trained HCWs
  • Two new features introduced in the Safe Delivery App (selective download of clinical packages and content integrations)
