Midwives: Leading the Community to Better Health

  • Published Date: June 2014

Midwives play a pivotal role in the reduction of maternal and infant mortality. In addition to ensuring maternal and child health care in the communities they serve, midwives also act as the community’s frontline health worker offering counseling, education, and treatment to men, women, and children. 
 
In collaboration with Amref Health Africa, the Leadership, Management & Governance (LMG) Project has built a course and trained 50 midwives in Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya, Malawi, and Ethiopia to be agents of transformative leadership in their service delivery workplaces. 
 
On July 10th, the LMG Project will host a panel discussion in Nairobi, Kenya with trained midwives and course facilitators as they share their experiences in the program, and discuss the importance of leadership, management, and governance in supplementing their clinical skills.
