Our Partnerships

Ammalife creates and sustains a whole variety of partnerships with organisations, companies and governmental organisations committed to tackling maternal mortality worldwide. We work with our partners to raise awareness of maternal deaths and morbidity in the developing world and to promote strategies to find sustainable, just and effective solutions.

We are also members of the White Ribbon Alliance and Bond – the international development network. Please contact us if you want to know how we may work together to improve outcomes for mothers worldwide.

Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital, Malawi

Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital (QECH) in Blantyre, Malawi is a major teaching hospital where more than 11,000 mothers deliver each year. Ammalife has a long-standing partnership with the obstetrics and gynaecology department at QECH which has involved staff exchanges, research, provision of practical supplies and working with Birmingham Women’s Hospital to support a link between the two hospitals.

Malawi Association of Obstetric Clinical Officers

The Malawi Association of Obstetric Clinical Officers (MAOCO) was formed in October 2014 by Malawian graduates of the project to bring together Clinical Officers for education and professional development. A strong partnership has developed between Ammalife and (MAOCO) which has involved knowledge sharing and joint programme fundraising.

Birmingham Women's Hospital

Birmingham Women’s hospital is home to Ammalife. Ammalife works with Birmingham Women’s Hospital (BWH) and the Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital (QECH) in Blantyre, Malawi to support a partnership between the two hospitals. Both recognise the mutual benefit and the wonderful staff at BWH regularly run fundraising events and organise equipment collections such as textbooks and much needed small disposable medical kit.

University of Birmingham

Ammalife has a strong link to the University of Birmingham’s Institute of Metabolism and Systems Research, as a result of collaborating on joint research projects. In addition, Ammalife’s student branch at the University is an active group of medical students who are passionate about global maternal health. Ammalife works with the group to raise awareness of our work amongst the student community and to raise vital funds through student and community events.
