“We want to live in a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every birth is safe, and every girl and woman is treated with the dignity and respect she deserves.” 

– Celina Caesar-Chavannes, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of International Development (2017-18)

Midwives Save Lives (MSL) contributed to the reduction of maternal and newborn mortality by improving the supply and demand of health services and strengthening the work of midwives’ associations. 

MSL was funded by the Government of Canada through Global Affairs Canada, and is led by Cuso International in partnership with CAM and local midwifery associations in Benin, Ethiopia, Democratic Republic of Congo and Tanzania.
