03. PNG Buddy Program building midwifery leadership and improving maternal and newborn health outcomes in PNG. @ Room 3, BBB

Speaker: Ruth King

Facilitator: Cecilia Jevitt

Description: Sharing a story of development and achievement through successful Twinning, as midwives in PNG and Australia with guidance and support from Rotary embark upon a journey to grow and sustain the leadership potential of midwives in PNG. 12 of the anticipated 18 midwives from Australia have already connected with their PNG Buddies leading to increased confidence for leadership, action and advocacy as well as implementation and planning for a number of innovative tangible projects. Because we know that midwifery leadership is vital in addressing the SDG targets for maternal health, sharing the learning from this initiative could assist other low-middle-income countries where it may be applicable.
