Maternal mortality rates remain high in Mozambique -- an estimated 408 deaths per 100,000 live births.

The University of Saskatchewan has teamed up with the Mozambique Ministry of Health (MISAU), specifically the Province of Inhambane health Directorate (DPSI), to improve sexual, reproductive, maternal and newborn health for women, adolescent girls and newborns in five districts of Inhambane Province.

The project aims to improve access to sexual, reproductive, maternal and newborn health care; increase community support; train health care workers; mobilize local leaders and residents in 20 communities on women’s empowerment; improve the capacity of health clinics for maternal and reproductive health; and share information and research on sexual, reproductive, maternal and newborn health.
