Our work has research-proven impact

Safe Delivery+ 

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.
