PROGRAM ACCOMPLISMENTS/STATUS
CY 2016 Maternal, Newborn Health Program in Region IX
The Millennium Development Goal (MDG 2015) has ended last December 2015, and the goal to reduce maternal death has remained wanting in region 9. Although the downward trend in maternal deaths can be clearly appreciated from the actual maternal deaths of 77 or MMR of 101.56 in 2011 was down to 58 maternal deaths or MMRof 75.68 in 2015. Contributory to improving maternal health that resulted to the decline in maternal deaths are some of the very important health indicators such as; 4 ante-natal visits, facility based delivery and deliveries attended by trained health professionals, who are either doctors, nurses and midwives.
Introduction and intensification in cy 2010 and thereafter of the Basic Emergency Obstetrics and Newborn Skills Training for health workers is one strategy that boast the capabilities of health workers. It involved the 11-day BeMONC Skills training for a team of doctors, nurses and rural health midwives and the 7-day BeMONC training for rural health midwives which the national DOH have funded during the earlier years of conduct and later it was the regional office who took over the financial support which resulted in a 100% local government health facilities with trained staff on BeMONC. To date, Region IX boast of a total of 633 health workers trained on BeMONC, of which 200 are doctors, 200 nurses and 233 midwives.
Another very important training that is seen as a strategy that will help avert maternal deaths thru early detection of maternal-child condition is the Tunog ni Nanay, Tunog ng Buhayā€¯ OB-Sonography training which the region has funded. It was noted that the Municipal Health Officers who were trained on the above-named activity has greatly improved on the quality of maternal and child health services being offered in their respective areas. In view of this, the Regional Office IX, given the availability of funds will continuously   assist the local government health units thru assistance in trainings of key health staff to ensure maternal and child survival towards Sustainable Development Goals 2016-2030.
