" The World Needs Midwives
Now More Than Ever "


The Royal College of Midwives, UK`s Global Midwifery Twinning Project

The RCM, UK`s landmark three-year twinning project with Nepal, Cambodia and Uganda has been officially launched in July 2012. The project is funded through the Health Partnership Scheme, which is funded by the UK Department for International Development for the benefit of the UK and partner country health sectors. The government-supported project is hoped to strengthen midwifery associations and improve midwifery services in the countries. The three twinning countries were selected because they have high rates of maternal and perinatal deaths.   The twinned countries will work together to foster two-way learning and knowledge and skills sharing throughout, and hopefully beyond, the course of the project. The RCM will work with midwifery associations and governments in each country to dovetail the project’s aims with their national plans for reducing maternal and perinatal deaths and to strengthen midwifery services. The RCM will match midwives with the relevant skills and experience to each country and a major focus of the project is on the UK and twinned countries learning from each other. The UK volunteer midwives will use their expertise to support midwifery associations and midwifery colleagues in their twinned country. From 18-22 June three midwives from each country took part in the Global Midwifery Twinning Project Planning Workshop held in London organized by the RCM. Explore detail about the project from
