The Neonatal Care Course (NCC) is an educationally robust product. We teach about the four main areas that the World Health Organisation identifies as contributing maximally to neonatal mortality rates: resuscitation at birth, early breast-feeding, keeping babies warm and early recognition and management of sepsis. https://www.who.int/maternal_child_adolescent/topics/newborn/enap_consultation/en/). Our feedback forms show increased confidence of learners in all 4 of these areas. Increased clinical confidence correlates with increased performance over time.
Here is Grace, a one time NCC learner and now in-country NICHE champion and convener of their own independent NCCs, delivering a workshop on breastfeeding to local midwives. This is what empowerment of local health professionals does. This is our legacy and we are proud of it and very grateful to all who donate time, money and expertise to our charity.
