From the 2nd till the 16th of October Health[e]Foundation in collaboration with the Ethiopian Midwives Association and Ethiopian Medical Association had planned to organize two follow-up workshops in Addis Ababa and Adama and two kick-off workshop in Bahir Dar and Hawassa. Unfortunately due to certain reasons Health[e]Foundation had to cancel the first follow-up workshop in Adama. The follow-up workshop in Adama will likely be postponed to January 2017.
EMwA celebrated its 25th Annual General Assembly on 7th of October 2016 with the theme “Moving beyond the Birth: Midwives as Stewards of the Next Generation." The event, held at the Genet Hotel in Addis Ababa, attracted more than 1000 midwives from around Ethiopia.
Midwifery education has a history of more than sixty-five years in Ethiopia from when the first midwifery training school was established. Conversely, the Midwives Association has the age of a youth; only 25 years. Our level of success far outweighs our age since establishment.
