A new donator SIDA (Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency)  joined the project “Tanzania Maternal Health Program”.

The commitment from SIDA will be of 1,5 M USD until 2014. Their grant’s objectives are to:

a) Improve internal communication tools between health workers in order to secure quality, competency and to support emergencies.

b) Improve external communication with the target populations to improve basic knowledge of danger signs in pregnancy and childbirth.

c) Improve external communication at the national level as well as to other regions/countries to raise awareness and increase knowledge about the project for future scale-up of the model.

The board is looking forward to working in collaboration with SIDA to further optimize the outcome of the Maternal Health Project.
