International Midwife Assistance is a non profit dedicated to improving the welfare of women who live in places in the world where maternal and infant mortality is high. IMA and its partnership with other nonprofits and, most importantly the communities where IMA has served has significantly improved the health and lives of women and their families. I have volunteered as a physician with IMA in Uganda, working in the Teso Safe Motherhood Project in Soroti and their outreach clinics as well. I have seen the impact that providing skilled, compassionate care to women has had; it insures the best outcomes in their care. Imagine the statistic of 0 (yes, zero!) maternal deaths in 2013 and the significant effect it has on families and the community as a whole. And please imagine the impact providing women with family planning options has on the future of these women. I have be honored to be a board member of International Midwife Assistance.
