KIVULINI MATERNITY CENTRE

Maternity Africa’s Kivulini Maternity Centre is located near the city of Arusha in Northern Tanzania.  It opened officially in June 2018, and provides a spectrum of good, evidence-based maternal healthcare services.  These include antenatal care, intrapartum care, postnatal care and family planning counselling and treatment.  24-hour Comprehensive Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care (CEmONC) is available on site. 

At Kivulini Maternity Centre, Maternity Africa also provides surgery for ladies suffering from obstetric fistula and other birth-induced injuries. 

Kivulini Maternity Centre is equipped with its own laboratory, theatre, pharmacy, wards accommodating up to 48 bed, administrative offices and staff accommodation. 

Thanks to the generosity of Maternity Africa’s donors, all of the services are provided free of charge to the vulnerable and marginalised women and girls of childbearing age treated at Kivulini Maternity Centre.
