Our first 10 videos on newborn care are now available in Nepali. We’d like to thank Dick Katzman, MD, family physician in central Vermont for providing the funding for these narrations. Dick has deep ties to Nepal—he is a board member of America Nepal Medical Foundation and has, for many years, volunteered to provide training and medical care in remote regions of Nepal.

Save the Children-Nepal has agreed to fund the Nepali narration of our next 20 videos on newborn care and childbirth. Our filmmaker Bishnu Kalpit and his team in Kathmandu are handling the translation and voice-over for all 30 videos.  We are very grateful for this language support which will help to facilitate the use of these videos among health workers in Nepal.

    Hi, I am wondering if you have any plans to translate the videos into Tibetan? Approximately how much do you think it costs to translate the videos into another language? Was it done in Nepal, or with Nepali speakers in the US? Thanks, Nancy Kerr, MD Assistant Clinical Professor, Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology University of New Mexico

    As it is said that seeing is believing,these videos will help a lot in improving the knowledge of traditional birth attendants who are still assisting in conducting deliveries due long distance to health facility and inadequate trained staff in some facilities.
