    AMRN logoThe African Midwives Research Network (AMRN) is a network of midwives that aims to share information, strategies, and solutions based on scientific evidence for providing quality midwifery care in the Africa region.

    The Network focuses also on enhancing the expanded role of the midwife in promoting sexual and reproductive health and rights by identifying available scientific evidence and encouraging its use. The Network also encourages more action-oriented research to be undertaken by midwives. Initiated in Tanzania in 1992, the Network has active members from Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique, Uganda, Kenya and Eritrea.

    In 2010, the African Midwives Research Network, the University of Nairobi and WAHA International organized the first international midwives conference for East Africa. The conference took place in Nairobi, Kenya between the 27-31th July and explored the role of midwives in tackling Millennium Development Goals 4 & 5.

    The conference also specifically focused on the role that African midwives can play in the prevention and early treatment of obstetric fistula through:

    - Provision of comprehensive antenatal care
    - Promoting skilled birth attendance
    - Providing comprehensive post-partum care
    - Advocating for early management of fistula
    - Conducting research in midwifery and nursing practices

    WAHA International and the African Midwives Research Network will continue to join their efforts to reduce maternal mortality in Africa and to explore new strategies for improving access to prevention and treatment for obstetric fistula.
