• 12. bCPAP training – putting it all together; the story of Chigonjetso

This film goes over the ground covered in the previous films through the story of Chigonjetso, one of the first babies to be put onto CPAP at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in Malawi. We see his struggle to survive, and then six months later he is an alert and healthy baby.

This is one of a set of 13 Pumani bCPAP training films made by partner organisation Picturing Health.


Originally developed by students from Rice University, Texas, the low cost Pumani Bubble CPAP is now being rolled out across Africa, and is becoming a basic piece of equipment in many hospitals and health centres. The CPAP project is run by Rice 360˚ Institute for Global Health Technologies and Hadleigh Health Technologies, with funding from USAID. The videos are licensed under a creative commons licence for educational purposes only. Permission must be obtained for other uses.
