They have created an online survey for pregnant women and new mothers , the results of which will be analyzed in the upcoming month – https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/zmd-app

ZMD was also presented at this year’s  Helthio – an event that brings together more than 10,000 citizens and healthcare system users, with more than 5,000 healthcare professionals and about 1,000 companies from diverse backgrounds. The presentation was done and made by the co-founders Dr. Véronique Thouvenot and Dr. Serrano Pons, and Dr. Alegria, director of Gambo Hospital in Ethiopia. The material for the presentation was based on the research conducted with IFF in Rio, Brazil (above) and work done by Chinomso Ibe, nurse in Nigeria (on the pictures showed using the ZMD App).

Nurse Chinomnso Ibe selected for 2015 Mandela Washington Fellowship

WeObservatory is most  delighted to congratulate nurse Chinomnso Ibe of the “Save our mothers” project from Nigeria on being selected for the 2015 Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders. This selection will allow Chinomnso Ibe to engage in a 6 weeks intensive fellowship at Wagner College.

“Save our mothers” is one of the first projects selected by the WeObservatory. Nurse Ibe Chinomso and her Traffina Foundation have since gone a long way from conducting basic educational campaigns to launching now the “Clean Birth Kits” initiative. With the support from the WeObservatory and other partners the  Traffina Foundation is able to provide free delivery kits containing sterile instruments that women require at childbirth.

More about the project on the website.
