Maternity Foundation


Maternity Foundation commits to reach a minimum of 10,000 health workers with the Safe Delivery App by the end of 2017 and hereby significantly strengthen heath workers skills and knowledge in Basic Emergency Obstetric and Neonatal Care.

Assuring health workers’ knowledge and skills in identifying and managing life-threatening obstetric complications is essential to reduce maternal and newborn deaths. With access to skilled care during pregnancy and childbirth an estimated 90% of the existing maternal and newborn deaths could be prevented.

Hence, by reaching 10,000 health workers with quality training we expect to ensure that 1 million women will give birth with a better skilled birth attendant.
