The request for more midwives and nurses was one of the top requests from the What Women Want campaign in Kenya. Women and girls described their lived experiences while voicing their demands for Increased, competent and better-supported doctors.
To fully realize the demand for midwives, we needed to understand better from midwives themselves what they want and need. In Kenya over 3,500 midwives voiced their demands on what they need most to be able to deliver quality services to women and girls. White Ribbon Alliance Kenya is pushing for improvements in midwives’ working conditions, changing the public’s perception of their work and supporting then in advocating for their profession. All of which in turn, will lead to improved care for women and newborns.
