SafeMa aims to advance partner HEIs’ capacities so as to generate and spread excellence in midwifery education and research.
The project "SafeMa: Education Hubs for Excellence in Midwifery"

Enhancing women’s access to quality midwifery services has become the focus of global efforts, with significant achievements over the past few decades in reducing maternal and newborn mortality. Increasing awareness and policy support has generated demand for qualified midwives. Yet, there is a constant challenge for practitioners to acquire the necessary practical competencies to deliver quality maternal and neonatal care. A new Agenda should include developing intensive, sustainable collaborations between education programmes, practice settings and government systems for supporting midwifery education.
