Commitment by

Pakistan National Forum on Women's Health

In 2009, the Pakistan National Forum on Women's Health committed to scaling a program to train nursing and midwifery tutors, who will be placed in nursing and midwifery schools across Pakistan. This program addresses the critical challenge of producing qualified trainers who will then go on to teach at one of the 272 nursing and midwifery schools in the country, thereby helping to develop a well-trained, competent workforce of nurses and midwives who will tackle the high burden of maternal deaths in the country.
