Excellence in Midwifery: 2014 International Midwife Award

ICM Save Combo Logo

The ICM/Save the Children Excellence in Midwifery Award rewarded two midwives who have been champions for newborn survival in those countries which experience the highest number of newborn deaths. With this award, ICM and Save the Children recognized the work midwives do in particular the difference that midwives can make for newborn survival. The winners of this award are Pronita Rani Raha from Bangladesh, and Agnes Kasaigi from Uganda. In Bangladesh, where midwifery is not yet established as an autonomous profession, Pronita Rani Raha is one of the first midwives and a true role model for others. In Uganda, Agnes works in a rural health clinic and dedicates her life to helping mothers. Colleagues say about Agnes that she is ‘friendly, committed, a mother who gives care’.
