Never have Hamlin midwives played a more pivotal role in eradicating obstetric fistula and improving maternal healthcare across Ethiopia.
Project Zero includes expansion of the Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia Prevention program. Our goal is to establish a midwifery clinic in every woreda (district), staffed by Hamlin midwives who have trained at the Hamlin College of Midwives.
A comprehensive antenatal program is also being introduced to ensure all pregnant women deliver safely and new cases of obstetric fistula are prevented.
A new app called Maternal Health Improvement Tool (M-HIT) is being used by Hamlin midwives to monitor pregnant women and escalate care for those at risk.
