Lahore, Pakistan–Ayesha Sohail owns a small private health clinic in the Samanabad area of central Lahore in Punjab province. There, this Lady Health Visitor—a position similar to a skilled birth attendant in other parts of the world, with nearly three years of training—provides care and counseling to numerous women.

An advocate for family planning, Ayesha was recently trained on the postpartum intrauterine contraceptive device (PPIUCD) through the Jhpiego-led Saving Lives at Birth project. She was one of 88 care providers, among doctors, nurses, midwives and other Lady Health Visitors, to receive this training.
