Respectful Maternity Care and ESMOE

The Essential Steps in the Management of Obstetric Emergencies (ESMOE) is a WHO-supported, national training initiative to improve emergency management of pregnant women and their infants.

The PMHP was invited by ESMOE leadership, to contribute to the development of a new interactive module on Respectful Maternity Care to supplement the 12 existing modules. Master trainers will be equipped to conduct this training at scale, across the country.

PMHP teaching & training programme

PhD student

Tesera Bitew is an Ethiopian PhD candidate linked to PRIME who is conducting his research on antenatal depression and maternity care utilisation in rural Ethiopia.

Tesera visited the PMHP for six weeks to learn from our service and training programmes and also to link with our research staff to support his work. We were able to learn from him more about how Ethiopian mothers face the hardships associated with poverty and patriarchy.
