AMREF intends to train 4,900 midwives, including nursing midwives, in Senegal and Côte d'Ivoire. This project looks to upgrade the skills of midwives in rural areas in order to reduce maternal and infant mortality and more specifically to:
Roll out e-learning training courses for midwives, build a regional e-learning platform, increase the number of centers using distance learning, transfer skills to local players involved in the program, increase the number of women and children who have access to healthcare, increase the number of women receiving care during childbirth and reduce the isolation of midwives and increase coverage in rural areas.
This partnership falls under AMREF’s “Stand up for African Mothers” campaign, a campaign to train 15,000 midwives by 2015 in 15 African countries.
