The main purpose of the Workshop held 16 – 18 August at the Intermed Hospital, Ulan Bator, Mongolia, , was to explain the “Happy Baby, Health Mom” App and to train midwives how to use it. Almost 15 members of Japanese Midwives Association with some of the Board attended the Workshop, together with members of Mongolian Midwives Association, including a member of the Executive Committee. This is the second Workshop after the workshop held in 2016 that used the paper leaflet. The Workshop this year gave training for the use of the App, with Dr Badarch Jargalsaikhan MD,PhD as the main speaker. All members participated and enjoyed a fruitful seminar.
The App is also presented in a nomad village to the local women, and gained a lot of interest.
“This App Happy Baby, Happy Mom is especially useful for Nomad people in Mongolia as travel in winter is severely restricted.”
