BIRTH IS AS SAFE AS
YEARS IN SERVICE
Through community events and donations
The obstetric neonatal emergency simulation, ONE-Sim education program was founded and is spearheaded by Dr Arunaz Kumar and Dr Atul Malhotra.
Arunaz (obstetrician-gynaecologist) and Atul (neonatologist) have been operating this project since 2016 with programs currently running in a number of countries in Asia, Africa and the Pacific region. ONE-Sim provides local healthcare professionals – doctors, nurses, midwives, and students, education about dealing with complex childbirth and newborn care issues, through hands-on experience using simple simulation technology.
Through the “Train the Trainer” workshops, the ONE-Sim program also aims to empower local staff who can then further impart the training within their own workplace. The program aims to address a number of child birth emergencies, including obstructed labour, post-partum haemorrhage and birth asphyxia, which together are estimated to contribute to close to 1 million deaths per year worldwide.
ONE-Sim global health education program for low and middle-income countries is completely funded by philanthropic grants and community support. Please contact us for more information on how you could contribute, participate, or donate now if you wish to support us.
We also run ONE-Sim courses in Melbourne and online for high income countries at a nominal cost for the participant. Register for our next course.
