The establishment of a new clinical service (NICU) in a low resource setting: Education & Systems Evaluation

Monday, May 14
16:15 - 17:15
Location: Universe Ballroom 123

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Sengerema, Tanzania, opened in 2015. For the past two years the nursing and medical staff was trained in neonatal care following the program ‘Helping Babies Breathe’. Helping Babies Breathe (HBB) is an evidence-based educational program to teach neonatal resuscitation techniques in resource-limited areas. By starting this NICU, the neonatal mortality rate dropped with 40% in the past year. The ‘secret’ behind this enormous progression, will be shared during the final session of the day! ‘Karibu’, feel welcome to join!

My name is Milou van Ingen, former NICU-nurse and nowadays Physician Assistant in Neonatal Critical Care. I combined my two biggest passions in life: the NICU and traveling. In 2015 I ended up in the north of Tanzania: Sengerema. A village in the ‘bush’. I started working in a mission hospital called ‘Sengerema Designated District Hospital’. With a neonatal mortality rate ten times higher compared to Holland, the NICU started in November 2015. After one year we achieved a neonatal mortality reduction of 40%. Let’s make that number a 100%!
