A Situational Analysis of the Status of Midwifery in North Africa and the Middle East
Abstract:Midwives from the Middle East and North African (MENA) region convened in Dubai, United Arab Emirates in 2012 to engage for the first time ever in a discussion concerning regional strategic interventions to strengthen midwifery and the work of midwives in the Arab countries. The workshop was an opportunity to establish a culture of positive and balanced collaboration and mutual understanding among midwives and between midwives and other maternity care professionals including nurses and obstetricians. Key challenges and opportunities in midwifery in the MENA region were identified. Participants agreed on strategic goals to strengthening midwifery education, regulation, and associations in the MENA region.
