Maternity Africa seeks to improve maternal health outcomes for vulnerable women living in poverty across rural Tanzania.
We work alongside government and local non-government agencies in order to strengthen the capacity for the provision of free, high-quality maternal health services, build an evidence base for effective health interventions and advocate for women’s health and well being.
We have a free centre of excellence in order to strengthen the skills and expertise of national health care providers and achieve this through training and mentoring of staff engaged in service delivery.
We offer prevention and treatment of obstetric fistula. The prevention project is through maternity care for early pregnancy complications, antenatal, birthing and postnatal care. This includes 24 hour obstetric emergency cover and on-site transitional neonatal care for the newborn. The treatment programme is through surgical intervention of fistula and other birth injury cases. We also offer a comprehensive family planning service to in-patients and the local community.
