By all measures, Malawi has a critical shortage of midwives, despite their enormous importance in reducing maternal and neonatal mortality and morbidity. These midwives work under strenuous conditions consisting of long hours in environments that typically lack medical equipment and necessary supplies. The report and summary provide results from a 2016 survey of bedside midwives in Malawi by the White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood, conducted by Prime Health Consulting and Services, as part of the HP+ project. The results and recommendations are intended to inform policy decisions and advocacy in Malawi.
