ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia: Genet Azmach is a senior midwife and head of the Delivery Case Team at the Kotebe Health Center where she has been serving for the past 8 years. She has been providing lifesaving maternal health services assisting pregnant women and giving sexual and reproductive health services against all odds.

“There have been times that no cut-gut was available to suture tear and beds to admit laboring pregnant women; mothers were also convulsing due to absence of anticonvulsants and other essential medications,” says Genet.
