Midwives for Haiti works in collaboration with Haiti’s Ministry of Public Health and Population and other organizations to deliver culturally appropriate, high-impact health interventions. Their approach reduces the three major delays that prevent women from accessing life-saving maternal care: delay in the decision to seek care, delay in reaching care, and delay in receiving adequate care. The organization has a vision to reduce maternal and infant mortality in Haiti by training skilled birth attendants, with an emphasis on serving rural areas. Birth attendants are trained and then dispatched to areas in need.
