Alliance of African Midwives (AAM) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization of midwives and other healthcare professionals dedicated to excellence in improving the health and education of women and children. We are committed to providing emotional, physical and knowledge based support for women and their families during pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period while promoting a positive birth experience.
The organization includes midwives, doulas, childbirth professionals and consumers who foster unity among midwives with respect to differences in education and professional practices. The organization focuses on the African continent and offers useful information for midwives and student midwives at all levels.
Our Mission is working to strengthen the capacity of midwives in Africa to identify and meet the needs of the countries they serve.
Our Vision is to see better maternal and child health for the people of Africa.
Our Goal is to unify and strengthen midwives of Africa, thereby improving the quality of health care for women, babies, and communities in Africa.
