The MANI project was developed in 2015 to increase the survival chances of mothers and newborns by improving access to health services and promoting innovation for better maternal and newborn care. One of MANI’s interventions trains Traditional Birth Attendants (TBAs) to become Birth Companions, who refer and accompany pregnant women to health facilities for antenatal visits and delivery.
