Pre-service Midwifery Education in Sub-Saharan Africa: A Scoping Review

In response to a global call for more midwives, stakeholders have called for increased investment in midwifery pre-service education. Given the already long list of challenges in pre-service education, the need to prioritize investment is acute, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. This scoping review in Nurse Education in Practice, authored by staff and partners of MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership, summarizes the current peer-reviewed literature about pre-service midwifery education in sub-Saharan Africa to inform educational investments in response to the call for more midwives and WHO’s and other maternal health stakeholders call for increased investment in midwifery pre-service education.
