This project aims to reduce maternal mortality and increase SRHR for women and girls between the ages of 14 and 49 in Somalia. More specifically, the project works to improve the availability and accessibility of professionally trained and certified midwives who are able to provide high-quality, rights-based SRHR services to these women and adolescent girls. The project also addresses underlying barriers to women’s and adolescent girls’ demand for, and use of, midwifery services by increasing awareness at the community level of midwifery and SRHR.
