Our Story

Mama na Mtoto, which means ‘mother and child’ in Swahili, is a research and implementation initiative between Canadian, Tanzanian, and Ugandan partners that strives to improve maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH) in rural Tanzania.

We work with local governments, universities, and communities to strengthen health systems, fortify health facilities, and build community engagement by leveraging local knowledge and skills and recognizing the role of gender and equity to execute effective and sustainable MNCH initiatives.
