Group Antenatal Care (G-ANC) is a differentiated antenatal care (ANC) delivery model intended to address the special needs of young mothers and keep them in care. G-ANC empowers young mothers to meet as groups, take their own observations such as weight, height, mid upper arm circumference measurements, and share their motherhood experiences before attending routine individualized clinical assessment and examination.
This approach produces better health outcomes for the young mother during the antenatal care and postnatal care (PNC) periods as a result of attending their care in groups and giving birth with the support of skilled personnel.
The course aims to build the capacity of facility-level health workers to address the unique health needs of adolescents and young women that include high-risk pregnancies, HIV/STIs and socio-economic challenges. It captures the unique MCH/PMTCT health care needs for pregnant and breastfeeding AGYWs and suggests friendly interventions tailored to meet these special needs.
