Sierra Leone is one of the most dangerous places to give birth. The country has been ranked third lowest in terms of the Mothers' Index, which assesses mothers and children's well-being.

The shortage of midwives is the most significant cause of high maternal mortality. That's why the AMF's Midwife Training Program is investing in up-skilling new graduates and in expanding our safe delivery program.
