More Village Health Volunteers Graduate

The Western Highlands Provincial Health Authority (WHPHA) has graduated another group of Village Health Volunteers (VHV) who will provide professional assistance to expecting mothers in their respective villages to deliver safely. The month-long training which involved both theory and practical sessions has been funded by the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) as part of its ongoing efforts to help reduce child mortality in the country. The 21 women, all from the Tambul/Nebilyer District of Western Highlands, have been trained on how to help expecting mothers when they go into labour and later take them to the nearest health facility to deliver.
