Maternity Africa volunteers will be responsible for significant aspects of the maternity unity at the Kivulini Maternity Centre. They will also support referral networks and help manage communication and transport for high risk patients and those facing complications during labour. Volunteers may also help train local health workers, including midwives, nurses, health officers and doctors to build upon existing knowledge and skills.
