USAID Helps Improve Maternal, Child Health Care At Pakistani Hospital

This post in the State Department’s “DipNote” blog looks at Fatima Jinnah Women’s Hospital, “one of more than 80 Pakistani medical facilities that the United States has helped renovate in recent years in Pakistan” and describes how medical personnel at the facility “demonstrated the benefits that new equipment and training opportunities have made to their standard of care on Thursday, August 18, as U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Mission Director Andrew Sisson toured the facility.” The blog adds, “To assist in improvements to maternal and child health care throughout the country, USAID is purchasing medical equipment and supplies, while also training medical professionals, including midwives, female health workers and other medical staff” (Oat-Judge, 8/19).
