Home      About      MS Ladies

Our mobile midwives reach women with discreet and accessible services.

It is not only material conditions, like poverty and poor health provision, that prevent women from accessing short-term and long-term family planning methods.

Intangible obstacles like stigma from the community, or religious and cultural restrictions can also go a long way towards making these services difficult to access. This channel is an innovative, scalable and low-cost delivery intervention, designed to overcome challenges of access to FP by supporting nurses and/or midwives in peri-urban areas to expand service delivery, to their communities.
