Abt Associates: Bold thinkers driving real-world impact
In rural Zambia, childbirth can easily turn life-threatening for a mother and her baby – something that Joseph Mushitu, a nurse at the Mukungule Rural Health Center, knows well. After training by Abt Associates, Mushitu can now handle many obstetric emergencies, resulting in better health outcomes and fewer referrals to district or provincial hospitals.
Two Abt Associates-led projects are improving family planning and reproductive health and a wide range of other health services in Zambia.
