Mandate

Advocacy

TAMA advocates for midwifery to be recognized as a specific medical profession in Tanzania. We support midwives, ensuring they are connected with each other and with their international counterparts through a strong professional association.

 

Expertise

TAMA works to strengthen and uphold the standards of midwifery education, practice and research. We promote standardized training for all in-service midwives on the core competencies required by the International Confederation of Midwives, and support wider use of competency-based education in the Tanzanian midwifery curriculum.
