The State of Ethiopian Midwifery 2012

In March 2013, EMwA launched the landmark report The State of Ethiopian Midwifery 2012. This report was developed in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH), United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the Swedish International Development Association (SIDA) and details the results of a baseline survey on the availability, distribution, education levels, challenges and opportunities of Ethipian midwives and midwifery students.
