Strengthening Midwifery Education with Sanofi
ICM, with the support of Sanofi Espoir Foundation, is implementing a project which aims to strengthen midwifery education in french speaking Africa.
The goal of the project is to strengthen midwifery education programmes in 22 countries in a phased approach which will include strengthening midwifery education institutions, clinical sites, faculty and curricula. Three countries (Côte d’Ivoire, Madagascar and Comoros) were identified as phase one countries.
The focus of activities is on the entire education system including faculty development (through competency-based education methodologies); curriculum development and review; preparation of preceptors for the clinical practice areas and building the capacity of the practice sites to support the effective education of midwives.
