Every year in Sub-Saharan Africa, about 200,000 mothers die as a result of complications during pregnancy and childbirth. Because of this, each year around one million children are left without a mother. Most of these deaths are easily preventable as they are the result of a simple lack of access to basic medical care.
Midwives Save Lives
With the Stand Up for African Mothers campaign, AMREF aims to train 15,000 additional African midwives by 2015. Once trained, we expect these midwives to be able to provide care for and health education to over seven million women each year.
A healthy Africa needs healthy mothers and African mothers need African midwives.
