Tunza Mama – a perinatal service provider under Amref University’s ISOMUM Project – launched in Kisii County to reduce maternal mortality which stands at about 500 deaths per 100,000 live births
The service aims at improving health provision and access for expectant & new mothers plus new born babies in the county. Tunza Mama is working hand in hand with professionally trained care givers to make this mission a success. With Affordable Health for everyone being one of the Big 4 agenda, Tunza Mama will play an important role in ensuring women can access quality, affordable and flexible healthcare towards creating a healthy nation.
The caregivers deployed in Kisii are well equipped with perinatal caregiving education from ISOMUM Institute, which trains and empowers entrepreneurial nurse-midwives before deploying them as independent caregivers to offer modern and innovative, quality care services to mothers and children through the first 1,000 days of a baby’s life – from pregnancy to birth and postnatal care.
