WHO launches programme to improve antenatal care in Mozambique

September 2014 -- When Langa*, a nurse at Centro de Saúde de Anchilo clinic in Mozambique, told a group of pregnant women how important it is to come to the clinic for check-ups before they had their babies, she spoke from her own experience. She explained to the women how grateful she is to make those visits now that she was expecting her first baby. Each visit provided her with useful information and she was able to receive rapid HIV and syphilis tests to protect her baby from possible infection.
