“Yala Yala” means community.
In the near future, MHI hopes to launch, “Yala Yala” a Midwifery Education Program that was formed in direct response to a need for quality midwifery education that focused on meeting competencies for the midwifery model of care (as defined by ICM) and graduating passionate community-oriented midwives who are trained to manage the complexities of reproductive care in East Africa.
This 3-year program will involves didactic training as well as direct clinical mentorship at birth center partners around Uganda. Graduates are eligible for licensure in Uganda and prepared to be leaders in the field.
For more information and to apply to the Yala Yala Midwifery School please submit this inquiry form and a staff member will follow up with you shortly.
East African midwives who are already practicing can apply for a funded mentorship in the Midwifery Model of care at the MHI clinic in Atiak.
If you are interested in mentorship please reach out.
Become a Quality Newborn Maternal Care Center!
Mother Health offers mentorship and staff training to clinics in East Africa willing to act as clinical sites for our students.
After a two-year mentorship program, clinics and hospitals are eligible to apply to become a Quality Newborn & Maternal Care Center: a clinic that is committed to the midwifery model of care and upholding best practices for care.
