Project Agbebi

Project Agbebi is a safe motherhood program that aims to reduce the incidence of pregnancy-related deaths and complications by educating traditional birth attendants in rural communities and equipping them to provide adequate and right services.

Project Agbebi strengthens and supports strategic alliances between Traditional Birth Attendants (TBAs) formal health systems and leading to the implementation of newborn health programs at scale.

Coined from the Yoruba word “Agbebi” meaning “the midwife”, the project has been empowering a network of Traditional Birth Attendants (TBAs) and maternal health providers across Southwest Nigeria.

Through an effective referral system, members of this network are trained and supplied with birthing kits. With the introduction of evidence-based prevention and treatment interventions, we have been able to improve traditional birthing methods used by women in under-served communities.
