A relatively little number of disease and conditions represent a large share of health burden, and the majority of them can be avoided and treated with low cost interventions. Nevertheless Maldives have a scarcity of doctors, nursed and allied health workers, and much of the population lives a significant range from a tertiary health care facility. So, access to medical care is a consistent difficulty for a significant part of the population. Really few healthcare suppliers are trained particularly in community health and security, despite the existence of numerous strong medical programs within the nation.
Male’ Health Service Corporation Ltd (MHSC/MALDIVES) is the first health corporation formed in April 2010. MHSC was formed to provide healthcare requirements within the nation. (Roughly sixty percent of the population) However maternity care is one of the primary leading forefronts (www.mhsc.com.mv). Absence of competent healthcare professionals and the associated problems in circulation of the needed healthcare resources has actually resulted in most of births happening in the tertiary medical facility (IGMH).
Furthermore caesarean shipment rates are greater in the island health centers due to the lack of experienced based midwives. (www.health.gov.mv) In addition, the vast majority of the population having little or no understanding regarding healthcare issues can be associated to the bad healthcare system in the country. In spite of the troubles in the field, with the acquired understanding and experience, I want to strengthen the maternity care within the nation.
Every woman should have the choice for a planned pregnancy, safe birth and healthy newborns.
To deliver a maternity service that enables women to have a positive birth experience and gives midwives the satisfaction of providing quality care, it is important to consider the organizational structures and environment in which it is delivered. The aim of WHO strategy based in Maldives in the year 2005 was safe pregnancy, evaluation of health care workers and development of guidelines for reduction of maternal mortality (www.who.org.mv). Hence, this must be done in conjunction with the appropriate use of healthcare professionals’ skills. Some of the key factors include: improving the environment the care is given, strengthening multidisciplinary partnership. Policy development and strategy making are some other factors to be looked upon. Yet the importance of healthcare management in an organization is realized when the organization is fully staffed and is financially sound to invest in advanced equipments. A basic concept in health care management is to provide affordable health care services to an average person. For example to pay for health visits, drugs, caring of the elderly etc. My aim is to strengthen the midwives in the country. To enroll skilled based professionals in giving care to the pregnant women in a financially feasible budget, while educating the community respectively. To conclude I believe the organization will benefit as I believe myself worthy candidate for the health care management program.
