U.S. Assigns ORT to Plan African
Health Projects; Team Does Study

How to put together the elements
necessary to relieve mother and
child from the disease-death syn-
drome prevalent in some areas of
Africa, is the subject of an ORT
study, sponsored and funded by
the U.S. Agency for International
Development.
A four-man team of medical and
health specialists began on April
27 a three-month probe of the
feasibility of establishing pilot
maternal-child health service pro-
jects in subsaharan areas that are
severely victimized by high inci-
dence of maternal and infant mor-
tality.
Malnutrition, infection and haz-
ardous reproductions are identified
as major sources of the problem
in a preliminary paper prepared
by the ORT Technical Assistance
Department.
The multi-nation study includes
Niger and Cameroon in West Afri-
ca, and another French-speaking
nation yet to be chosen. A parallel
study is being made by a group
of University of California spec-
ialists.
The ORT team is led by Dr.
Susan Kessler, consultant to the
Division of Family Health of the
United Nations World Health Or-
ganization, which is located in Gen-
eva, Swtzerland, as is the inter-
national ORT headquarters.
The ORT team has been charged
by AID with the task of "de-
veloping an action program . . .
designed to assist African coun-
tries in extending health services
to mothers and chilCren, including
child spacing services to be car-
ried out in pilot activities in sev-
eral countries, working within the
the health infrastructure and the

health personnel and resources
which exist in each country."
AID selected ORT for this as-
signment because of ORT's decade-
long experience in developing
modernizing projects in African
nations and its proven capacity in
planning and organizing training
programs.
