Ebola - the United Nations are looking for volunteers midwives

Brief Project Description:           

The overarching purpose of the Mano River Midwifery Response is to increase access to essential normal and emergency obstetric and neonatal service delivery and care for women and newborns in the Mano River area (Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone). In addition, this response contributes to reinforcing the health systems in the perspective of the post-Ebola epidemic. This response puts in place essential human resources, equipment, drugs and supplies, builds the capacity of national health professionals and raises community awareness. In each country a quick assessment will be done to determine population distribution, the available health professionals and equipment, and the international support already in place, in order to respond to the most critical needs and to complement efforts already conducted.
