The technology company Intel has partnered with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in a joint effort to strengthen the skills of midwives and community health workers.

Intel says the goal is to reduce the number of pregnancy and childbirth-related deaths across the world. The pilot program will start in India, Bangladesh and Ghana, before expanding to other countries.

The company hopes to help train one million frontline health workers by 2015 under the Intel 1Mx15Health project.

Julie Walker spoke with Mike Gann, director of emerging market health care at Intel.
