Amid Pandemic and Unrest, Midwives Undeterred in Saving Lives in Conakry
“I am in Taouyah, in Gnariwada,” said Aïssatou Nènè Baldé, a CMC midwife, shortly after the election. “This is one of the areas of increased political tension. But I go out to work because women need me.”
Ms. Baldé was recruited as part of a 9-month project supported by UNFPA and Takeda aiming to ensure quality sexual and reproductive services, including maternal and newborn health care, during the pandemic.
