Tanzania has one of the highest rates of maternal deaths in the world. Our partner, Maternity Africa is dedicated to helping women by making childbirth safer.

We have supported Maternity Africa to establish its new Hospital at Kivulini in Arusha, Tanzania to become a centre of excellence in maternal health care for impoverished women.

Maternity Africa’s action includes comprehensive maternity care,obstetric fistula and birth injury operations, outreach to promote awareness of fistula and identify new patients, specialist neonatal care for preterm and low birth weight babies, ongoing training for newly recruited midwives, and the training of midwives from other areas of Tanzania.
