Postpartum Haemorrhage is the leading cause of maternal mortality worldwide with a 6% prevalence recorded. In Africa and Asia where most maternal deaths occurred, postpartum haemorrhage accounts for more than 30% of all maternal deaths. However, the proportion of maternal deaths attributable to postpartum haemorrhage varies considerably between developed and developing countries. Consequently, many health care workers in developing countries have little or no access to basic practical information of PPH making it difficult to assess women with the risk factors typically leading to the complication that develops due to PPH. This study is aimed to determine the level of knowledge and managements kills of birth attendants providing delivery services as regards to PPH in Jos North, Plateau State, Nigeria. A multistage sampling technique was used to identify skilled birth attendants who are involved in the provision of maternal health services in Jos North Local Government Area. Informed consent was obtained from the respondents and when permitted by the respondents, the questionnaires were administered with confidentiality and results recorded by the interviewer. Out of 100 questionnaires completely filled, 86% of respondent are female why 14% are male. Professional qualifications of Registered Nurses (RN) was 12%, 10% of Registered Midwives (RM), RN & RM where 31%, Community Extension Health Workers (CHEW) is 36% and 11% of Junior Community Health Extension Worker (JCHEW) respectively; 56% of them are of the age range between 41-50 yrs; while 18% were between the ages of 31–40 and ≥ 50 years respectively. We found out that RN/RM demonstrated 80% higher level of knowledge and management skills in management of post partum hemorrhage among skilled birth attendants in primary health care of Jos North Nigeria with a significant relationship between the level of knowledge and professional qualification as well as significant relationship between the level of knowledge and years of working experience respectively at p-value<0.00001. In this study, we found that the RN & RM demonstrated high level of knowledge and managements kills in the management of post partum hemorrhage in Jos north primary health care. The study also found a significant relationship between the level of knowledge and professional qualifications as well as significant relationship between the level of knowledge and years of working experience. Thus, as the professional qualification and years of working experience increases, the level of knowledge of PPH also increases, reducing the morbidity and mortality experience in Jos North LGA of Plateau state, Nigeria.
