WHAT WE DO




We aim to contribute to the decrease in the maternal and infant mortality rates in the rural areas of the DRC with special focus on training, infrastructure and equipment



HOW WE STARTED




Prosami is an initiative that we started in order to reduce maternal and infant mortality and morbidity. My own mother died during childbirth at the age of 44, leaving behind a one day old baby girl who grew up in an orphanage together with several other babies who lost their mothers from childbirth complications. I later removed my sister from the orphanage and raised her as my own child. This experience had a profound effect on me, and I was determined to one day join the global effort to reduce maternal and infant mortality and morbidity in the DRC. Prosami is an acronym we derived from the French; PROmotion de la SAnte Maternelle et Infantile, which is the Promotion of maternal and infantile health.



HOW WE ARE FUNDED




We are funded by our members and people such as yourself.



TRAINING




Our objective is to strengthen midwifery education by providing the appropriate training of rural health care professionals and defining the standard of care applicable to the rural context. The program defines the level of training of health care workers, the functional criteria of rural health care centers, policies and procedures and a method of reporting statistics. Prosami stands as an advocate for the rural communities and acts as a regulatory body for health care professionals within its rural sector.
