  • Task Shifting, An Innovative Approach To Save Lives

Mozambique was the first county in the world to train midwives to perform Caesarean sections and other life-saving operations. This was a response to the acute shortage of doctors following the civil war that ravaged the country in the 1980s and early 1990s. Today, surgically trained nurses, midwives and medical technicians perform around 90 percent of all operations in rural areas. This project explores the concept of task shifting to tackle health worker shortages in three countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
