Bright Futures through Partnerships & Education

November 30, 2017

To strengthen our midwifery education initiatives, we have partnered with the Zürcher Hochschule für Angewandte Wissenschaften (ZHAW) and the Hamlin College of Midwives (HCM) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to support a teacher exchange programme.


In September we co-hosted an event at ZHAW with joint presentations by our President, Christina Blecher  and Denise Eigenmann, ZHAW Senior Lecturer, MSc Midwifery, who in June returned from her first lecture session at HCM. Attendees learnt more about our fruitful partnership with ZHAW and heard inspiring stories from Denise in German about her three months in Ethiopia teaching at the Hamlin College and visiting rural health centers.  


Denise concluded by saying that the Hamlin students “…have been asking if I would come back and teach them next year again, which I think is a good sign that the exchange was a success.”
