Emory Nursing Maternal and Neonatal Health in Ethiopia Partnership

About the Project

The Maternal and Newborn Health in Ethiopia Partnership (MaNHEP) is an initiative begun in 2010 to demonstrate a community-oriented model for improving maternal and newborn health (MNH) care in rural Ethiopia. The project is working in Afar, Oromia and Amhara Regions to strengthen the delivery of MNH services during the birth-to-48-hour period when mothers and newborns are most vulnerable.
