Examples of checklists for community-based frontline health workers in South Sudan


Here are two more of the nine checklists from the Maternal, Newborn, and Child Survival (MNCS) Initiative, which was developed and implemented countrywide among community-based providers by Massachusetts General Hospital and the Ministry of Health.  These two checklists illustrate the basic steps in newborn resuscitation (drying the newborn, assessment, clearing airway and stimulation, tying and cutting the cord, and ventilating with bag-mask-device) and dangers signs in young children (fast indrawing breathing, convulsions, unconsciousness, high temperature, and refusal to eat).  For more information, please contact:  Dr Thomas Burke, [email protected].
