Maternity nurse Therese Tshifu was worried: the newborn she had just delivered wasn't making a sound. The mother's labor had been long, and now the baby girl wasn't breathing.
A decade ago in this remote area of the Democratic Republic of Congo, the baby wouldn't have had a good chance. Health workers were dedicated, but did not always have the training they needed to save newborns during complicated deliveries.
But today, Nurse Therese knew what to do. She acted quickly and gave the baby a shot that aided in the onset of breathing. In the room, there were sighs of relief and smiles when people heard the baby's first whimpers.
