RIAMA midwife network goes from strength to strength
8th June 2021
Severe COVID-related lockdowns across Peru are taking their toll on the use of resupply methods. To help address that challenge, RHSC partner, APROPO, began training its network of Peru-based midwives, RIAMA, on the provision of long-acting contraception. And despite the fact that nearly 20% of midwives have still not returned to work, the RIAMA network continues to thrive: It now includes more than 541 midwives who reach more than 150,000 women nationwide. In addition, the revolving fund set up last year to procure supplies has trebled in value.
