Project on Improving Quality of Neonatal Care Services in Armenia

The Armenian Association of Neonatal Medicine is implementing a two-year project on Improving Quality of Neonatal Care Services in Armenia with funding support from USAID. Some components of the project are carried out in cooperation with the Armenian EyeCare Project. The project is implemented in all marzes (administrative-territorial units) and Yerevan, including all hospitals providing services of neonatal care. The main components of the program for 2015-2017 are:

• Training of neonatologists and neonatal nurses and organizing practical visits;
• Developing neonatal protocols and modules;
• Developing unified documentation;
• Providing 24/7 (round-the-clock, all days of the week) professional consultation services using innovative technologies;
• Defending the interests of neonatologists and neonatal nurses;
• Providing equipment;
• Developing a family-centered model of neonatal care and introducing it in seven neonatal units in the Republic of Armenia;
• Establishing professional ties and sharing experience with foreign structures active in the relevant field;
• Experience sharing with other medical associations operating in Armenia and developing their skills.
