여성과 산파를 돕는 아체의 보건센터

* Asset Name : Aceh health centre brings new help and hope for mothers and midwives * Shoot Date: 22 Feb 2007 On the outskirts of Banda Aceh, midwife Radliana is making a house call. She has come to check up on 30-year-old Asri, who is eight months pregnant. This will be Asri’s second child. She has little money for health care and is too far along in her pregnancy to travel to a clinic. Midwives like Radliana have traditionally served as primary caregivers for families in Indonesia. But with decades of unrest followed by the 2004 tsunami, proper medical resources in Aceh have been scarce. A new arrival to Tanjong village is changing that. Previously, more mobile mothers and children walked to Radliana’s home for treatment. Today, they are heading somewhere else: a gleaming new health centre, built by UNICEF. This is among the first of some 227 health centres UNICEF is building across Aceh and Nias island. They are designed to combine maternity services with essential care, including giving immunizations, boosting nutrition and promoting healthy behaviour. Most centres will also offer learning activities for preschool-age children. They are part of an effort to restore Indonesia’s 30-year-old “Posyandu” system – a network of community-based health teams that collapsed in the late 90s. Radliana says the new centre gives her more capacity to treat her patients – and more living space. She and her family live in one half of the building, separated from the examination rooms. Radliana, Midwife: “The response from the community has been very good. They really like the building and it offers more convenience and privacy for them come and check their health. Before, many were not comfortable coming to my house because there was only one room and my family was there.” Setia Hanum is one of seven pregnant women counting on Radliana’s care. She is worried about her unborn baby. Her first pregnancy ran into complications and required a caesarean section during birth. She hopes to avoid surgery a second time. Setia is comforted knowing there’s an improved health centre in case of trouble. Setia Hanum, 5 months pregnant: “Several years ago the midwife had to go from door to door. But now the service is better. The new midwife is more experienced in dealing with patients and we can get more medicine and more equipment.” …And a little more peace of mind for new mothers in Aceh.
