The baby was delivered by IHHN’s dedicated Lady Health Visitor (LHV) under the tele-supervision of doctor, present at IHHN Fakir Trust Zaibunnisa Primary Care Facility in Karachi.

When the Pakistan floods in 2022 wreaked havoc in many parts of the country, Sindh province was one of the most severely impacted locations. IHHN along with its partners United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), Health Department, Government of Sindh, supported by the People of Japan, established healthcare relief facilities at the affected areas, conducting continuous outreach services, emphasizing awareness and delivering services related to maternal, newborn and child health. With their promising support, this has led to improvements in IHHN’s antenatal services and the facilitation of deliveries for women travelling from remote areas at healthcare facilities, ultimately enhancing skilled birth attendance.

A 30-year old mother, gave birth safely in the area, despite financial hurdles, & cultural norms that prevented her from long-distance travel to a health facility. The LHVs ensured a safe birth using clean delivery & newborn baby kits provided by UNFPA Pakistan.
