The population in Tanzania lives mainly in rural areas in small villages where there is little or no pregnancy control, birth and infant care. Because of the unfamiliarity with the mother and child care as well as the unfamiliarity with the right to care, people usually do not arrive or are late for the right help. There is a great lack of well-trained aid workers.
Well-trained people in the right place and good resources make the difference. Trained aid workers can distinguish which women need more care and have to go to a clinic in time and which women can give birth in the villages. Giving birth under expert guidance would drastically reduce maternal and child mortality. An important aid is a (mobile) ultrasound device. Working with an ultrasound device is easy to learn with the right training.
