Impacting More Mothers with Grand Challenges Canada
The Kybele team is proud to announce that Kybele-Ghana has been awarded additional funding by Grand Challenges Canada to scale our innovative Obstetric Triage Implementation Package (OTIP) and Modified Early Obstetric Warning System (MEOWS) nationally across the country of Ghana. Kyble's OTIP + MEOWS innovation prevents critical delays by promoting rapid systematic assessment for all women, prioritization of women at risk, and the establishment of high-quality risk-appropriate treatment plans. This opportunity builds on our success of bringing OTIP to ten high-volume hospitals over the past three years, which resulted in the training of over 500 frontline health personnel and the prevention of critical life-threatening delays and improved quality of care for more than 50,000 women.

With the support of Grand Challenges Canada, Kybele-Ghana will partner with the Ghana Health Service over the next 30 months to:

  • Scale OTIP + MEOWS to approximately 75 high-volume hospitals across Ghana by leveraging select clinicians as champions to cascade training to their clinical colleagues.
  • Further refine, contextualize, and validate the impact of OTIP + MEOWS on timely and appropriate care in Ghana when brought to a national scale. 
  • Advance sustainability of the model through complete ownership of the OTIP + MEOWS package by the Ghana Health Service and through the integration of training, monitoring, and quality assurance into national health systems.

This project is supported by Grand Challenges Canada. Grand Challenges Canada is funded by the Government of Canada and is dedicated to supporting Bold Ideas with Big Impact®
