The Haiti Midwives Association (ASFH)

The Haiti Midwives Association was established in 2004 as a local organisation promoting the midwifery profession.

The Haiti Midwives Association was created in 2004 as a local organisation promoting the midwifery profession to reduce the maternal and infant mortality rate. They work in collaboration with other entities (such as the Ministry of Health, obstetricians, etc.) to provide and promote health and wellbeing throughout Haiti. To ensure greater visibility and recognition of the midwifery profession in Haiti, the AISFH has officially changed its name to ASFH.

ASFH provides ongoing training to its members and offers preventive and treatment services in the field of sexual and reproductive health.

ASFH promotes the following values:

  • Midwifery is an essential pillar in the promotion of health and in the fight to reduce infant and maternal mortality and morbidity in Haiti.
  • The care provided by midwives is based on respect for the well-being and dignity of the family.
  • Midwifery provides a favourable environment for the continuity of maternal and neonatal care.
  • Proximity to women, continuity of care, informed choice, choice of delivery site and community services are at the core of the high quality care midwives provide.
  • Midwifery care must be accessible to all Haitian women, regardless of socio-economic status.
  • It is important to highlight and promote the potential of midwifery to improve the well-being of women, families and society.
