Amref Flying Doctors, is - and has been for sixty years now - the biggest health organization on the African continent. Working hand-in-hand with vulnerable communities and in partnership with local institutions, every year we help 9 million people in more than 30 countries. Most of them are women and children, who represent the future of Africa.
Indeed, maternal and neonatal health is one of its key strategic priorities. In sub-Saharan Africa, one woman dies every three minutes from complications linked to pregnancy or childbirth. An average of one woman in two gives birth alone at home, without the support of a qualified medical professional.
To address these challenges, in 2011 we launched the international campaign “Stand Up For African Mothers”, which aimed to train 15,000 midwives, thereby reducing maternal mortality in sub-Saharan Africa by 25%.
To date, more than 12,000 midwives have been trained thanks to an unprecedented level of international support.
