Abstract [en]

There is a large indigence for more maternity homes in Mozambique. Pregnant women often have to walk long distances to get assistance giving birth. The conditions are hard to improve because of the shortage of educated staff. The maternity home and education center is a combined program for women in Maputo, Mozambique. The purpose for this is – apart from improving opportunities and help for pregnant women – to create a connection between education and practice so that the pupils can do their practice at the maternity home before working out in the country. The two instances are therefore closely integrated with each other. We want to develop a program that is also long-term giving, a kind of pay-forward-effect. The supposed consequence of the pay-forward effect is for graduated women to spread the knowledge to less educated midwifes in the countryside and at a long term improve health care for women.

Abstract [sv]

Det finns ett stort behov av fler mödravårdscentraler i Mocambique. Gravida kvinnor går oftast långa sträckor för att få hjälp att föda. Förhållandena är svåra att förbättra i avsaknad av utbildad personal. Mödravårdscentralen och barnmorskeutbildningen är ett kombinerat program för kvinnor i Maputo, Mocambique. Målet med vårt projekt är att hjälpa gravida kvinnor och att skapa ett utbyte mellan utbildning och praktik. Därför är programmen tätt integrerade med varandra. Programmet ska skapa insikt om graviditet, födsel, sexualitet, en slags ”pay-forward effect”. Verkningarna av ”pay-forward” är att utbildade kvinnor ska sprida kunskap till mindre utbildade barnmorskor på landsbygden och på lång sikt bidra till en bättre sjukvård för kvinnor.
