No. of pages: 20

Publication Date: February 2019

Author: UNFPA

These three midwifery case studies from Bangladesh, Ethiopia and South Sudan document the significant catalytic impact the Maternal Health Thematic Fund has had in comprehensively strengthening midwifery education, associations, regulations and policy in an integrated manner.

This has generated additional national and donor interest and commitment, thereby bringing financial stability and sustainability. It is also influencing national scale-up of midwifery programmes in several countries.
