Pronto International Project

PRONTO International aims to optimize care during birth through the development and implementation of innovative training strategies for healthcare providers that act as a catalyst for individual, team, and system change. In East Africa, PRONTO is a collaborator on the Preterm Birth Initiative (PTBi), which aims to reduce morbidity and mortality from preterm birth by strengthening facility-based care from pregnancy through to labor, delivery, and the immediate postnatal period.

For this project, PRONTO developed a facility-based simulation and team-training mentoring curriculum that focuses on identifying, triaging, and managing preterm labour and birth, and caring for preterm infants. KEPRECON’s scope is to support the work of improving the quality of care in facilities in Kenya and Uganda from September 2016 to August 2019.
