The midwives at the forefront of the birthing crisis in Cox's Bazar

Making the services of midwives accessible to displaced mothers living in refugee camps requires training and trust. The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the government of Bangladesh are working to support clinics and train individuals who wish to work as midwives in the midst of the Rohingya refugee crisis. Providing women in camps with quality reproductive health requires not only the mentorship of international experts, but also personal efforts to gain the trust of women by local professionals.
