ABSTRACT

Through the coordinated efforts of MADRE, a United States based organization of women, and AMNLAE (Asociacion de Mujeres Nicaraguense Luisa Amanda Espinosa), the national women's organization of Nicaragua, a midwifery work exchange project was developed. Midwives from the United States participated in continuing education enabling local Nicaraguan midwives to reduce maternal and infant mortality.
