Assisting pregnant women, cadre training, empowering health cadres


Maternal Mortality Rate (MMR) is an indicator of the impact of health development. The Maternal Mortality Rate (MMR) causes of are direct and indirect factors. These two factors can be prevented through prevention efforts based on community empowerment. One effort that can be made to empower the community is through empowering health cadres. This activity can be carried out through training to carry out pregnancy assistance by cadres. The aim of this training activity is to increase health cadres' knowledge about mentoring programs for pregnant women and skills in providing communication, information and education (KIE) related to the health of pregnant women and early detection of risky pregnancies. The method used is cadre group-based training in the Arjowinangun Malang Community Health Center area. The activity takes the form of cadre training regarding health assistance for pregnant women by health cadres. The results of this research showed that there was an increase in pre and posttest scores (74.6% in the sufficient category, to 91.15% in the good category). Meanwhile, the skills evaluation was in the good category (85.42%). The conclusion is that refreshing the material for cadres is necessary for optimal assistance for pregnant women. This pregnancy assistance program by cadres should become a Community Health Center program whose implementation also receives full support from the village government, and there are ongoing monitoring and evaluation efforts.
