UM and Zuyd University contribute to professional development of midwives in Sierra Leone

Maastricht University in cooperation with Zuyd University of Applied Sciences will support the continuous professional development for midwives in Sierra Leone, West Africa, through a renewed cooperation with the School of Midwifery in Makeni, a town located in the central part of the country.  The new project will contribute to (re)building a strong and effective health workforce in rural and urban Sierra Leone. The intended long term effect is to improve maternal and child health and health care specifically in the poorer parts of the country, where most of the targeted midwives are working.
