In rural Nepal, improving maternal and newborn survival depends on recruiting and retaining Auxiliary Nurse Midwives and Staff Nurses with Skilled Birth Attendant training. To improve access to maternal health services, the Government of Nepal is encouraging Districts and Health Facility Management Committees (HFMCs) to recruit nurses on temporary contracts. Financial support and basic guidelines have been made available for District Health Offices(DHOs) to enable nurse recruitment.
