MATER-SOM: New project to support midwives in Somaliland
The Nursing Now Challenge, Coventry University, and Edna Adan University and Hospital are working on a new project to support the education of midwives in Somaliland.
“As part of this project, we are developing a midwife train-the-trainer course that can be rolled out and shared in rural and urban areas of Somaliland. The aim is to support midwives in leading the development of maternity care and midwifery practice,” explained Professor Rosie Kneafsey, Director of Coventry University’s Centre for Healthcare Research.
MATER-SOM will enhance midwifery workforce capacity in Somaliland, particularly in rural and nomadic communities.

Two co-creation workshops will take place this month and we would like to invite you to join the stakeholder group to support this project, share your views and experiences regarding your midwifery practice and education needs.
