Health

JANMA Clean Birth Kit contains all the essential tools required to ensure safe and sterile conditions at the time of childbirth. Assembled by local women in India, JANMA (which means birth in Sanskrit) is packed in a biodegradable jute bag that new mothers can reuse as a purse.

Detailed Description: 

JANMA is a US$3 clean birth kit containing six simple tools recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) to ensure sanitation and sterility at the time of childbirth. By providing the 'six cleans' (clean hands, clean perineum, clean delivery surface, clean cord cutting and tying instruments, and clean cutting surface), JANMA prevents infections, mortality, and morbidity at the time of childbirth. JANMA not only saves the lives of mother and baby, but also gives them a happy, healthy, infection-free start to life.

JANMA is a 'one stop shop' for health institutions, enabling healthcare workers to provide a clean and safe birth regardless of facility conditions. Kit components come packaged in an attractive jute bag that new mothers can reuse as a purse.
