About the Partnership
One of the most significant challenges in reducing maternal, infant, and child deaths is the severe shortage of trained health care providers.  An additional 4.3 million doctors, nurses, and midwives and an additional 700,000 skilled birth attendants are needed in the developing world to achieve the Millennium Development Goals, according to the World Health Organization. 
  
Rotary's strategic partnership with AKU will increase the numbers and improve the professionalization of nurses and midwives, through improving access to trained health care providers for mothers and their children and through supporting studies related to maternal and child health.  Grant activities under the partnership include vocational training teams, and scholarships for nurses and midwives who are mentored by local Rotary clubs in East Africa. 

About AKU
Aga Khan University (AKU) is a private, nonprofit university that promotes human welfare and development through research, teaching, and community service initiatives. AKU operates 11 campuses and teaching sites in eight countries across East Africa, the Middle East, south and Central Asia, and Europe. The university's curriculum in nursing, medicine, and educational development reflects the unique needs of the communities and countries where the university operates.
