Our work recognizes high-quality evidence showing that midwives are an essential component in the delivery of safe and effective SRHR.  Investing in quality midwifery care across the life course is key to supporting both local and international population health needs. Our group is interdisciplinary with research competencies in the areas of health systems, health policy, health economics, health care quality, political science, and clinical studies.

The group has on-going research in the Somaliland, Somalia, Puntland, Demographic Republic of Congo, Bangladesh, Canada and Sweden. Collaborators are researchers from in-country universities, McMaster University in Canada, and the University of Michigan in the USA. Partnerships are central to our research projects and include non-governmental and governmental organizations and midwifery associations in-country and in Sweden.
