Tasiast hosts second ‘Helping Babies Breathe’ workshop

The World Health Organization estimates that one million babies die each year from asphyxia at birth, making the first moments after birth critical.

This is why Tasiast has continued its 'Helping Babies Breathe’ program with Project C.U.R.E. The program, which works is in close collaboration with the Ministry of Health, recently hosted a second training workshop in Nouakchott, Mauritania, training 24 nurses and midwives from the 12 different regions of the country.

By taking a “train the trainers” approach, medical professionals learned the resuscitation skills necessary to save newborn’s lives in the crucial minutes after birth, and are able to teach others in their remote regions. They were also given the medical equipment to do so in order to help lower infant mortality rates.

“This program is a testament to Tasiast’s engagement to contribute to positive change through corporate responsibility, which supports not only local communities but also nationwide, especially in health care programs,” said Hapsatou Bal, Community Relations Coordinator, Tasiast. “We are incredibly proud to help play a role in improving the community’s overall health.”
