Over the past 8 months, I have been interning with International Midwife Assistance (IMA). Specifically, I wrote a report that analyzes health data from their clinic in Uganda and the effectiveness of IMA's programs. IMA has a big impact on women and children in the Soroti area. The number of births at the clinic increases each year, as do services offered. One of IMA's strengths is the organizations ability to successfully scale up and introduce new programs, without compromising quality of care. Additionally, IMA is trusted within the community, making their clinic extremely popular. IMA earned this trust by providing high quality care, as well as treating each patient with respect and dignity. Interning with IMA has been a very beneficial experience professionally and personally. Having worked for other health/development nonprofits, I believe that IMA does things the right way. The organization exists to help women and children in Uganda live a healthier and happier life, I can say with confidence that IMA is succeeding.
