Maternal Infant Health Canada (MIH Can)

http://maa.med.ubc.ca

Maternal Infant Health Canada (MIH Can) is innovating sustainable, community-based, and culturally-appropriate maternal infant health practices in rural India through various creative strategies.
These strategies include:

  • Training with our partners in India to share ideas and knowledge about the best health practices for improving maternal and infant health. We are also in the process of  developing a reproductive health manual to further spread health information;

  • Research to ascertain and encourage creative and novel approaches to reduce maternal and infant mortality across India;

  • Lowering the low birth-weight deaths through culturally-appropriate thermal sleeping bags. This innovation is made of culturally appropriate fabric, which keeps babies’ temperature consistently high. These sleeping bags will be sewn by local women’s groups and sold to those who can afford them and given freely to others.
