The Canadian Association of Midwives and the Tanzania Registered Midwives Association are partnering to provide reciprocal capacity building at a peer-to-peer level.
Currently, twenty-four Tanzanian-Canadian midwife pairs are working remotely to exchange information and resources, and to support one another to fulfill what can sometimes be a very difficult role. This is a powerful connection that surpasses borders and recognizes the part that each of us can play in improving MNCH outcomes globally. It also recognizes how much more we can accomplish when we work together.
CAM will soon be organizing peer-to-peer twinning between early career midwives in South Sudan and early career midwives in Canada. This project will serve to strengthen the young and growing midwifery profession in South Sudan and provide an opportunity for sharing and learning for all participants.
