FAMILY INCLUDED GLOBAL ALLIANCE PARTNERS WITH CWC

A global project is here in Nigeria to advocate for more inclusion of fathers maternal and child health. Nigeria joins the Family included Global Alliance with Childcare and Wellness Clinics is the principal partner of FamilyIncluded.com in Nigeria.

Family Included is a project which seeks to help actualize the WHO declaration on family inclusive maternal healthcare; it is carried out by Dad. Info which is a UK based information service for fathers that has worked closely with UK maternity and child services for many years, providing them with resources for their own users, both fathers and mother.
“WHO has declared family inclusive maternal healthcare to be one of five top global priorities, because when families (fathers and others) are included, the health of mother and baby improves.”

Last year, WHO published the evidence backing up family-inclusive care. Since then, we have been collating and sharing all new research at FamilyIncluded.com. We have started to develop the Family Included Global Alliance, bringing together practitioners and policymakers interested in supporting the “community of care” around each child. It is resourced by a growing body of relevant research and reports on successful approaches all over the world.

We can build this Network in Nigeria, linked into the global network so that Nigerian services can learn from researchers, practitioners and policy makers not just in Nigeria, but everywhere in the world and Nigeria can teach others around the world on the basis of its own advances and successes.

The project in Nigeria is proposed to include

• Training for professionals so that they become skilled and confident in working with men, couples and groups. These are vital components of family inclusive care, alongside the one-to-one support offered to the mother.

• Information for fathers about the importance of fatherhood for child welfare and how they can become fully engaged, overcoming the structural and cultural barriers that have formed around their role as careers. Also needed is information for mothers and all family members about the important role of fatherhood within the “community of care” that exists around every child.

• •Networks for health workers implementing family inclusive care, whereby they can receive advice and support directly and informally from peers. This peer networking is essential in providing continued support beyond start-up and training programmes.

• A forum for policy makers from government and civil society groups, where all aspects family inclusive care can be considered, in particular the common barriers that prevent its development. Previous experience of developing family inclusive care demonstrates that these barriers will become a primary focus of attention as the ideal of family inclusive care is pursued.

Catalysing scale-up of maternal and newborn health innovations: lessons from a case study in North-Eastern Nigeria

This is the Research brief on lessons from a case study of scale-up in North-Eastern Nigeria (CWC/IDEAS 2014 PROJECT)

Summary

Scaling-up successful maternal and newborn health (MNH) innovations to a wider geographical area should improve the survival of more women and babies.

This case study looked at an innovation known as the Emergency Transport Scheme (ETS) that aims to increase demand for MNH services in North-Eastern Nigeria by providing timely and affordable transport to health facilities for mothers and newborn babies in rural communities.

Lessons from this study could help implementing organisations, national and state governments and donors to scale-up successful innovations in the future.

Lessons for implementers

  • Plan for scale-up from the beginning of a project
  • Align innovations with the local health system
  • Ensure innovations respond to the local context
  • Develop an effective advocacy strategy
  • Generate strong and robust evidence to advocate for scale-up and plan for introducing an innovation at scale
  • Work in close partnership with local organisations and government
  • Consider issues of sustainability

Lessons for government and donors

  • Government are best-placed to coordinate the stakeholders involved in scaling-up an innovation including donors and their implementers
  • Sustainability of scaled-up innovations will require government support in the longer term
  • Donors should look to government for coordination and align their funding with government health priorities

HEALTHY HEARTS!!

One of the most important things you can do is to see your doctor for a heart health check. This involves getting your blood pressure and pulse rate checked, assessing your weight and having a chat about your lifestyle risk factors.

Often there are no symptoms of heart disease. Many people do not know they have high blood pressure because it does not always cause noticeable symptoms. As a result, the silent condition contributes to more than 9 million deaths every year, including deaths due to heart disease and stroke.

A healthy heart check aims to help you lower your risk of four common but often preventable diseases: heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease.

A healthy lifestyle will make your heart healthier.

1. Give up smoking: Smoking is one of the main causes of coronary heart disease.
2. Get active: Do 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity every week.
3. Manage your weight: Being overweight can increase your risk of heart disease.
4. Ditch the salt: To maintain a healthy blood pressure, stop using salt at the table and try adding less to your cooking, or cut it out completely.
5. Eat oily fish: Eat oily fish twice a week such as mackerel, sardines, fresh tuna and salmon are an excellent source of omega-3 fats, which can help protect against heart disease.
6. Walk off stress: If you are feeling under pressure, clear your mind with a walk. It will help put your ideas in order and reduce tension.
7.See your doctor for checkups. Childcare and Wellness Clinics is the right stop for Consultations. We are open 24/7 with experts ready to attend to you at all times. Visit us and have a consultation with our experts.
