For the second consecutive year, we are pleased to announce the launch of the Midwives for Life Awards 2015 in order to reward projects led by midwives which aim to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality and improve the health of women and newborns in developing countries.

Up to 10 projects will be selected by a jury of experts and each laureate will receive a financial support of
5, 000 euros to develop its initiative. This call for proposals will close on March 31, 2015.

For more information, click on the tab “projects and awards” on the Connecting Midwives platform.

As a reminder, the Connecting Midwives platform offers a dedicated space to midwives to pool, discuss and share their ideas, projects and innovations. This platform allows them to enrich their professional practice and improve the health of women and newborns.
