The World Health Organization has developed a toolkit [*] to provide guidance on developing policy, training curricula, essential equipment, teaching and best practices on trauma, anaesthesia, HIV prevention, pregnancy complications and in disaster situations. The toolkit is available from http://www.who.int/surgery. The toolkit takes a primary health care approach in strengthening health systems to reducing death and disability in injury, pregnancy related complications, congenital anomalies and infection.

Subject: [HIFA2015] Meeting the information and learning needs of Traditional Birth Attendants (11) TBAs with phones for obstetric emergencies
Does anyone have experience in Emergency Medical Services for TBAs? We are looking to establish a service in Haiti where midwives are given cell phones and trained when to transfer patients in difficult/prolonged labour for emergency care.
I came across a program done in Rwanda with UNICEF and was looking for the experience of any other members of the HIFA group.
