On 7 December, the Government of Flanders decided to grant 509.000 euros to the World Health Organization (WHO) to improve the quality of midwifery workforce and health care services for mothers and new-borns in Mozambique.
The initiative builds on a long-standing relationship between Flanders and WHO. In this particular case, WHO will focus on the enhancement of the quality of midwifery workforce. One of the outcomes of the project is to establish a quality control system in selected hospitals, with a focus on surveillance and response in order to reduce maternal and neonatal deaths in Mozambique.
WHO is implementing the project in cooperation with the Mozambican Ministry of Health. The projects will target Tete and Maputo, which are also recipients of development aid from the Government of Flanders.
