About the Award

ICM and USAID are working to identify and reward up to eight (8) FP Fellowships to midwives who have been or will be champions for family planning in USAID focus countries. With this Fellowship, ICM and USAID are recognizing the critical role that midwives play in advancing reproductive health in their countries and regions, and in particular the difference that midwives can make in reducing maternal mortality through increased provision of voluntary family planning services to women who desire them. The Fellowships are sponsored by USAID’s Office of Population and Reproductive Health, and given on behalf of the American People. This is the first occasion that USAID and ICM are sponsoring these Fellowships.
