Real People, Real Communities – proven results

Dr Mangwi implemented a program to educate mothers immediately after birth, such as encouraging breast feeding within an hour of labour, and umbilical cord care to prevent infection and septicaemia. Dr Mangwi said African mothers often waited several days before breastfeeding while they waited for their milk to come down, and instead fed them unsanitised water or sugar. By introducing breast milk or colostrum early, they limited the incidence of diarrhoea and illness and reduced mortality. Further, in Richard’s village, it was also the practice to apply animal manure to the umbilical cord. Infant mortality was extremely high throughout the entire area.

Dr Mangwi completed his audits and recommended changes that were implemented by the hospital administration. Through making these changes, infant mortality in the community has been drastically reduced.
