Who We Are


Our Mission is to lead global efforts that improve health and well-being of women and infants worldwide through strengthening the profession of midwifery and building the capacity of midwives and other health professionals to serve their communities.


Since 1982, through DGO ACNM has implemented projects and provided technical assistance in more than 30 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Eurasia. We have received numerous grants and cooperative agreements from United States Agency for International Development (USAID), development agencies from outside of the United States, Department of Health & Human Services, private foundations, and volunteer organizations.  We also have worked as a subcontractor on USAID's global maternal health programs including but not limited to MotherCare, ACCESS-FP, and the Prevention of Postpartum Hemorrhage Initiative. Through programmatic and technical expertise of its staff and membership, the ACNM supports a full range of clinical maternal and newborn health topics across the globe.
