In the two health projects in Mugu funded by Else Kröner-Fresenius-Stiftung and Austrian Development Agency via PHASE Austria, we can report the following results for the quarter from January to April:
A total of 2,948 patients were seen in the outpatientclinics, of whom 1,261 women and girls. PHASE health staff delivered 57 babies,of which 28 were home deliveries and 29 births were attended in birthingcentres – a good sign that were these facilities exist, acceptance is high in arelatively short space of time (the birthing centre in Bama was established only 2 years ago, the one in Dhainakot only very recently). Family planning services were delivered to 206 women and men. In addition, PHASE staff facilitateda number of activities to raise healthand nutrition awareness, for instance workshops on nutricious weaning food or„healthy baby competitions“, an initiative of the local PHASE health workers.
