DGO Improving Health

ACNM's Department of Global Outreach (DGO) has more than three decades of experience strengthening the capacity of midwives and other health care
professionals in developing countries. The scope of work encompasses providing safe and compassionate care, reducing maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality, and optimizing the public health impact of maternal and newborn health care providers in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Eurasia. 

The Department of Global Outreach is housed within the well-established American College of Nurse Midwives, the professional organization for certified nurse-midwives and certified midwives of the United States. Over the past 55 years, ACNM has developed a wealth of expertise and institutional knowledge of the
components required to build a profession that creates competent and qualified providers.

DGO's four areas of expertise include:

  • Development and implementation of in-service training systems
  • Integrated pre-service strengthening
  • Strengthening of midwifery and other health professions
  • Community education and mobilization
