Local Research Staff

The Safer Births research is being conducted at two sites in Tanzania. The rural Haydom Lutheran Hospital, and Muhimbili National Hospital in Dar es Salaam. The project is dependent on local research staff from recording labor data at each delivery using stop-watches, to collecting, plotting and sorting the data. Without the tremendous contribution from the local research staff at these sites the Safer Births Project would not have been possible.
