The process of designing and conducting this project, collecting information and
analysing the training institutions and initiating a new concept of developing midwives
was very challenging .The consultation meetings & field visits during the inception of this
innovative project provided sound basis to determine the focus of this initiative.

report of the Project. It is a matter of immense pleasure and pride that we accomplished
this task within scheduled time and with required quality.

We value the efforts of Ms. Joan Kagle, whose generous support, understanding and her
exceptional intellect for human being suffering on our challenges is exceptional .It was
not possible to make reality of midwifery training in the remote areas of Baluchistan and
Sind; without Ms. Kagle’s kind cooperation. Her gift will help us create midwives’ network
in communities across the provinces of Baluchistan and Sind, thus help to save mothers
and deliver their babies with love, respect and professional support.

Executive Summary

The present report covers Oct. 2011 to Sept. 2012 project period.

The project was conceived in view of the acute need for the rural women for their
maternal health care for safe deliveries. The encouragement and support from Ms .Joane
Kagle made the concept real. The excellent funding support from Fidelity Charity Gift
Funds, the institutional infrastructure and the excellent women graduates in the rural
Balochistan created by IDSP’s Women Leadership Program, with overall support of the
Trust for Development Studies and Practices Pakistan, made it all happen.

The report gives an overview of the status of maternal mortality rate of Pakistan in
general, focusing Sindh and Balochistan particularly. Pakistan has one of the highest rates
of maternal, pre-natal and child mortality recorded internationally. Research indicates
that 40 per cent of all deaths in Pakistan are preventable.
Some the major areas covered in the present report is the mobilization of more than fifty
families and communities in 20 or 25 districts of Balochistan and Sindh. About 100 men
and women to Karachi to ensure that all that we had claimed in our motivation and
community education processes is true and real, and their women will be safe and there
is not influence of men in the whole environment. The project management team did an
excellent job of hosting the families in the IDSP hostel in Karachi, gave them full
orientation, with food and bedding, arranging their travel to the training institute. A
detailed orientation was given again on the training institute and the living space as for
the under training women. Then they participated in the inauguration ceremony of
midwifes training course. The whole event went on for a week, before all sent beak
happy and satisfied.
The other major breakthrough that helped was the purchase of a building for midwifes
hostel and IDSP’s office in a very modest and safe middle class locality in Karachi. The
establishment of the hostel was one of the fundamental part of midwifes project. The
IDSP’s midwifes do not go home on weekends, they all come to IDSP hostel and relax, go
to sea side, to entertainment parks, zoo and market places, films, theaters, they take
gender and women empowerment classes for leadership training. Their families come to
meet them, and they can call their families.
Another achievement is IDSP and HARD partnership for midwifes training. HARD is a very
practical and relevant training institution. It not only teaches and training midwifes but
also has a very well designed health program for the women student of midwifes
training.
Besides the launching of a two years midwifes training program, refreshers, for the
previously trained midwifes was also held. It was also a very great opportunity for
midwifes to learn about medicine, herbal treatment, communication skills, gender
relation and dynamic, plus their own health care as women.
One very fundamental outcome is the pre midwifes training cost for two years courses
and for start three month refreshers (see the financial report). The report also explains
the technical aspects of the course in details.

Introduction of IDSP/TDSP

A lot has been done - Much remains to be done still:

Institute for Development Studies and Practices IDSP-Pakistan, is an emerging national
research and practice based national institution based in Balochistan & is working under
the umbrella of Trust for Development Studies & Practices (TDSP). It is committed since
its inception in 1998 ,to its mission of creating, nurturing and engaging adolescents,
youths and young women and men in to professional cadres of community development
with a connection to national and international opportunities. Its major focus is on
excluded adolescents, youths and young population from the national mainstream of
formal education, life as a citizen and from decent, dignified and meaningful livelihood.
(Especially for women)

learners in its courses or who joined to create it as part of their practice based learning
since 1998.Since its inception IDSP has launched 12 development courses, 5
mainstreaming gender in development courses, three course cycles of reflective learning
for adolescents & one community development course. These are some of the major
courses that have engaged more than 5000 youth and young numbers of youth across
the country.

more than 70 + communities across Baluchistan and Sindh. While more than 2000
graduates are engaged in social, economic and political activities and programs. Many of
them are on leading position in public and private sectors, from community to
international levels.

The idea of IDSP stemmed out of a critical need- to create a learning space for the
development and intellectual bolstering of the different groups of the motivated
individuals from various fields of research and development. IDSP has been conducting
theory and practice based courses on the themes of development studies, Gender
mainstreaming and community development. The hub of IDSP activities is Quetta. IDSP

Background: Overview
Increasing women’s access to quality health service to have the best possible health care
during pregnancy and childbirth is a basic right of every woman. There is much that
needs to be done. Every year approximately 350,000 women die while pregnant or giving
birth, up to 2 million new borne die within the first 24 hours of life, and there are 2.6
million still births. The overwhelming majority of these deaths occur in low-income
countries and most of them could have been prevented. This happens because of no
access to functioning health facilities or to qualified health professionals.
Pakistan has the highest mortality ratio in South East Asia. As per available statistics 80%
of females deliveries at home by unskilled workers called by basic name (Dai). Only
trained persons can save motherhood in the communities and avert maternal mortality.

Pakistan Maternal Health Indicators
 Pregnant women receiving prenatal care: 61%
 Births attended by skilled personnel: 39%
 Births in Health Facilities: 35%
 Women receiving postpartum care: 22%

Figure 3- National Nutrition Survey Report 2011- Aga Khan
IDSP conducts two types of courses regarding midwives trainings which include three
months practice based course for those women who are already trained in the field of

Page 11 of 36
midwifery but only require practice. After the oral assessment of selected midwives they
are provided 3 months in-house training with practices. IDSP bears cost of all trainees
including boarding, lodging, transportation, and resource material. IDSP has already
conducted 2 months training with support of Quttar Hospital and one (1) refresher
course with support of Aga Khan Hospital. IDSP has affiliated trainings with HANDS CMW
School which is registered by Nursing Counsel Pakistan. The IDSP program model is
comprised of 3- month training courses. During practical session these midwives trainees
have dealt more than 1150 delivery cases in Quttar Hospital Karachi.
Secondly IDSP includes fresh girls/ women for the two year theory and practice based
courses which are being implemented with the collaboration of HANDS training
organization in Karachi. This course is held in IDSP Sindh Campus and 25 learners are
enrolled from Sindh and Balochistan.
A referral based system had been introduced to enable them to link up with secondary
health outlets public sector. In addition, a network of midwives has been devised as per
their geographical areas. This network serves as a platform to share experiences and
provides help where needed. The network is linked with the Doctors, Pharmacists,
Teachers and Midwives, providing health facilities to community whenever required.
Referral System

Figure 4- Referral system
Scope of Practice-Midwifery
o The midwife works in partnership with women, on her own professional
responsibility, to give women the necessary support, care and advice during
pregnancy, labour and the postpartum period up to six weeks, to facilitate births and
to provide care for the new-born.
o The midwife understands, promotes and facilitates the counselling processes of
pregnancy and childbirth, identifies complications that may arise in mother and baby,
accesses appropriate medical assistance, and implements emergency measures as

Page 12 of 36
necessary. When women require referral, midwives provide midwifery care in
collaboration with other health professionals.
o The midwife may practise in any setting, including the home, the community,
hospitals, or in any other maternity service. In all settings, the midwife remains
responsible and accountable for the care she provides.

The Project: “MAA”

IDSP is focusing all interventions to build capacity of youth and women in Baluchistan.
The province has least health facilities especially for Mother and Child care because of
less accessible areas and lack of human resources. Based on previous experiences and
utilizing existing human and technical resources, IDSP has designed a project for rural
women and children for mother & child health care. The project, called “MAA”, is
designed in a way to establish capacity of local women in Midwifery and extend their
access to far flung areas so as to provide Mother and Child care and reduce mortality
among pregnant women and new-borns.

Project Planning
The planning phase consisted of consultative meetings,
selection of training venue, course guidelines, selection
criteria of Trainer & Trainees and suggestions for training
points as an important part of planning. The consultative
meetings gave ideas to develop partnership with training
Institutes and developed support mechanism for midwives.

Midwifery Hostel

To facilitate the midwives during their stay at Karachi, IDSP
has purchased a building that serves as a hostel for Midwifes.
Due to it the family members and relatives of midwives can
easily meet them when the midwives feel homesickness due
Figure 5- Skype Meeting
to being away from their families for long .The administration with Director of IDSP
of the hostel also provides them entertainment opportunities
by taking them to picnics, dinners, etc.

Selection of Training Institute

Page 14 of 36
Following institutions were visited and selected during the planning phase of the project:

1. Koi Goth Hospital Karachi: Dr. Shershah’s training institute
There was a problem of safety and security and also there was no practical space in
hospital. Moreover, the tutor of the training institute did not satisfy the Midwifes with
their behaviour, while attitude of Dr. Sher Shah & his team was extremely humiliating
and discouraging.

2. Aga Khan Hospital Karachi (Kharadar)
Aga Khan Medical University School of Midwife and Nursing has comprehensive training
program. But the assessment of their graduate revealed that they have less practical
training. Training of midwifery was started and AKU midwives completed 1st quarter of
training.

Challenges of Changing World
o Social & cultural barriers for residential course
o Law & order condition generally in Karachi and
Baluchistan specifically for girls.
o Bringing behavior change to allow girls out of
province & out of city, hostel living.
o One interesting lesson was that unmarried young
women who were not exposed to any kind of
medical setting related to child birth; it was too
over whelming for the women without any
exposure of maternity related work or
environment.
o Too much use of cell phone
o Home sickness
o Missing the family celebration occasions
o Knowledge of English language in medical
writings in books.
It is a very major achievement that we addressed all
the above mentioned challenges with excellent
result, except one challenge and that is law and
order situation in the city of Karachi and Balochistan.
