Our work has research-proven impact
Our Safe Delivery+ programme is a digital, modular learning and training platform. It includes the Safe Delivery App, developed with healthcare workers and based on research.
The Safe Delivery App is a professional job aid and learning tool for midwives and healthcare workers. We combine the app with online learning in addition to remote and on the ground trainings.
So far, we have reached 300,000 healthcare workers, trained 14,000 and our services are used in more than 40 countries.
Our work has proven impact which has been documented in several research studies.
Below, please find link to the most recent publications, showcasing how the Safe Delivery+ programme empowers healthcare workers across the world and help ensure safer births for women and their newborns.
