Sudan has a maternal mortality rate of 331. In 2015, the Sudanese American Medical Association launched the Post-partum hemorrhage Project to provide continuous medical education, and maintain advanced midwifery training programs to prevent and treat PPH. In March of 2016, Faiza Maki Abdalla Karkoon, a midwife from Al-Rufaa Hospital participated in a Helping Mothers Survive course led by Jhpiego trainers from Tanzania and Uganda under the SAMA-led PPH Project. Helping Mothers Survive is a new approach to learning that employs best-practices for training techniques including: clinical simulation, case-based learning, and frequent skills-based reinforcement sessions on the jobsite. Â A large part of the HMS approach is repeated practice after the initial training dose. Faiza was chosen by her supervisor to act as the clinical mentor for the hospital. As a Clinical Mentor, she has been organizing repeated practice sessions on key-life saving skills related to PPH management with her team at Al-Ruffa Hospital.
