Scaling Up Every Second Matters for Mothers and Babies - Ketamine (ESM-Ketamine)

Our Transition to Scale proposal will provide the ESM-Ketamine package to 34 health facilities (covering a catchment area of nearly 6 million people). The package includes: an ESM-Ketamine kit, and a one-week training program for providers that covers basic pharmacology, appropriate monitoring, Helping Babies Breathe, wall charts and checklists, and case-based learning. The adoption of ESM-Ketamine in Kenya will avert many maternal and neonatal deaths. We anticipate that ESM-Ketamine will be scalable to other countries affected by the anesthesia gap, helping women receive essential surgical care.
