This CD ROM has been developed to support the UCM and upgrading midwifery programmes. It combines a number of new strategies that are being piloted by MCH department to respond to the national needs within the Health sector. These include reducing maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality in relation to Millennium Development Goals 4, 5 & 6. Consequently this course embraces the latest methodology (Problem Based Learning) and technologies (Computer based education) in an attempt to be relevant and effective in preparing new midwifes. The materials on the CD ROM have been authored by both University of Malawi - Kamuzu College of Nursing and foreign experts.
