It is a research program aimed to provide better access and reduce the overall cost of life-saving health care services in target Rural Health Units / Local Health Centers in GIDA (Geographically Isolated and Disadvantaged Areas) municipalities all over the country.

A total of four participants, composed of three registered midwives and one IT officer, attended the said training.
