The types of projects that we assign to our midwives are very varied: opening a small maternity hospital in a rural setting, establishing a programme to respond to sexual violence problems, attending patients in a hospital in a city, etc. Our midwives work in diverse cultural contexts and in conflict zones. It is therefore necessary to be able to adapt to that specific reality.
