A saviour in the neighbourhood: Auxiliary Nurse Midwives offer life-saving antibiotics

View Resource

Baby Farhan is restful in his mother’s arms as she sways him to sleep. Kanta, the local Accredited Social Health Activist (ASHA) has arrived to conduct a final visit to check on mother and baby, who is now 42 days old. Each ASHA conducts seven home visits to review newborns growth and development at pre-specified intervals till baby is 42 days old. Kanta will have to return when the baby is fully awake. Nonetheless she carefully observes the calm baby who she suspects as a case of Possible Severe Bacterial Infection (PSBI).
