To cater to the low literacy rates at the community level, we create easy-to-use pictorial tools for birth attendants to counsel pregnant women and their families on acceptance and use of skilled maternal and reproductive health services. One of our pictorial pamphlets called the M-checklist, is a step-by-step guideline for administering misoprostol tablets after delivery. Skilled birth attendants use the M-checklist at their clinics and primary healthcare facilities to counsel and prepare pregnant women and their families on the use of misoprostol tablets for PPH prevention and treatment.
We designed a Misocard tool which provides a list of all the generic brand names under which misoprostol tablets are available at the local pharmacy. Birth attendants and health workers use the Misocard tool to purchase misoprostol tablets from their nearest pharmacy or assist pregnant women and their family to purchase directly. This tool is effectively used by birth attendants and ensures that women do not face access constraints in acquiring the tablets for PPH prevention and treatment.
