MCHW Job Aid on ‘How to Manage Third Stage Labor” and “a Guideline”

The Nepal Family Health Program (NFHP-I) was a six-year (2002-2007) bilateral activity of United States Agency for International Development, Nepal (USAID/N) with the Government of Nepal. Its overall goal was to support the Government’s long-term goal of reducing fertility and under-five mortality within the context of the National Health Policy and Second Long-Term Health Plan 1997-2017.

Under the Safe Motherhood Program activity of NFHP, JHU/CCP team provided assistance to National Health Training Center (NHTC) in developing a MCHW job aide on ‘How to manage the third stage labor’ which was pilot tested in 26 districts through key stakeholders. Based on the finding, it was further revised, a guideline was also developed on how to use the job aide effectively and disseminated to the Refresher trained MCHWs to support their utilization of the job aid for active management of third stage labor. The job aid was integrated by National Health Training Center (NHTC) into the refresher training for MCHWs.
