Emory Nursing Maternal and Neonatal Health in Ethiopia Partnership

Mission and Vision


MaNHEP works with the Federal Ministry of Health in Ethiopia to strengthen six district-level health systems to become models for the effective delivery of maternal and newborn health services. The service delivery practices developed by these model districts will be adopted throughout Ethiopia, which should lead to a reduction in maternal and newborn mortality rates and an improvement in maternal and newborn survival.


All women and newborns in rural Ethiopia will receive the appropriate package of care in time, every time around the time of birth.
