One of EMwA strategic directions set for the period from 2016 to 2020 is research and publication. In order to realize the objectives set with this research and publication direction, EMwA has established National Research Advisory Committee (NRAC). This committee members are senior midwives who were drawn from different universities. EMwA successfully completed research methodology training to the NRAC members and five researchers who took grant from EMwA. This training is aimed at building the capacity of NARC and grantees. Thematic areas for research were identified for future intervention.
