The ‘Mother Kangaroo’ method is now being implemented at the Durrës Obstetric Hospital, with the collaboration of the Albanian Ministry of Health, the WHO Albania, the UNDP Country Office and the IFAD/UNOPS PASARP Programme. The project received technical assistance from the author of the innovation Professor Hector Martinez and was supported by the Burlo Garofolo Medical Institute of Trieste (Italy). The Method is implemented in the Durrës Hospital in collaboration with the territorial health units, which orient potential ”kangaroo mothers” to the Hospital and guarantee the follow-up of “Kangaroo babies” once they go home. All “Kangaroo mothers” involved in the project have welcomed the method enthusiastically. For the first time, babies are placed close to their mothers soon after their birth, thus increasing breastfeeding and improving the mother-baby relationship. The project intends to consolidate the Method in Durrës and to extend it to other Albanian regions. In accordance with the Albanian Ministry of Health, the Durrës Hospital will act as the National Centre for the Mother Kangaroo Method by carrying out promotional and training activities and by establishing new “Mother Kangaroo Units” in other Albanian Hospitals and medical centres. Dr. Eduart Tushe, director of the division of Neonatology at the Maternity Hospital of Tirana, will act as national supervisor of the Mother Kangaroo Method ensuring its progressive adoption at a national level, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health. The ART WIN international laboratory (Welfare INnovations) of the Region Friuli-Venezia Giulia, set up within the framework of the ART Partnership agreements with UNESCO, UNDP, OMS-WMC and UNOPS, will support the dissemination of the Mother Kangaroo method within the health care system of the Mediterranean countries.
