About MamaYe in Ghana
MamaYe Ghana arms individuals and communities with evidence and information to ensure the survival in childbirth of Ghanaian mothers and babies. We provide evidence so that individuals, healthcare professionals and local communities can recognise gaps and act to improve the delivery of care to mothers and babies during childbirth.
We believe that with the right evidence and information, individuals and communities can hold to account those who have influence over the survival of Ghana’s mothers and newborns. These are women themselves, family members and healthworkers; but also politicians and officials at district, regional and national level.
We encourage Ghanaians to not just rely on government and international donors to ensure mothers survive. Instead we call on the Ghanaian public to step up and play their part – large or small - in saving the lives of the mothers and babies in their families and communities.
Finally, we showcase and celebrate the heroes and heroines who work hard, as volunteers or health workers, as taxi drivers or blood donors, as politicians or officials, to save the lives of Ghana's mothers and newborns.
