Maama Project Report
Last month our yearly evaluation report was released. This report documents the evaluation of the Maama project following one year of implementation. The project aims at increasing knowledge of maternal and newborn health in the community and the uptake of health services such as antenatal care visits and deliveries at health facilities. You can read our fantastic progress here.

IFMSA national weekend

SOGH took part in the National Weekend of the International Federation of Medical Students' Associations (IFMSA) on 12th-14th of February in Stockholm. Students interested in getting involved with the Maama Project were offered a workshop on ways to raise awareness of maternal and newborn health and to fundraise for the project at their universities. Following this inspiring weekend, we are now working on expanding the Maama Project to more universities together with the students.
