BKFA

At ProMed, we’re all about dreams. And while we love assisting medical students in achieving theirs, we also believe passionately in helping women in developing nations achieve the most basic of dreams – to deliver a healthy baby in a clean and safe birthing environment. That’s why we’re so proud to partner with the Birthing Kit Foundation Australia (BKFA), an organisation dedicated to reducing the incidence of infant and maternal mortality in developing nations.

In 1999, Dr Joy O’Hazy, an Adelaide based GP, devised the simple birthing kit consisting of the 6 basic items (a plastic sheet, soap, 2 gloves, sterile scalpel blade, 3 cords and 5 gauze squares) needed to assist clean birthing conditions, minimise transmission of germs and prevent maternal and new-born infection.

We are in awe of the extraordinary work BKFA does and are committed to supporting this not-for-profit, non-government organisation which has no religious or political affiliations.
