  • Supportive Supervision and Mentoring
  • Monitoring, documentation and reporting

In order to provide ongoing support to CMNH’s work in Tanzania we are now seeking to appoint two Regional Coordinators who will work under the supervision of the Research in Medecine Midwife.  The role has been created to assist with the implementation of Emergency Obstetric & Newborn care and Quality Improvement programme workplan with districts in Mbeya and Njombe regions.
