New York
Midwive in the Choucha Camp


She is 54 years old and her job is midwife. Today, after helping thousands of women give birth to new lives, she is offering her 35 year-long experience to pregnant women refugees at the Choucha Camp, in the south of Tunisia.

A traveler at the service of life
She was born in Ben Guerdane, and became midwife almost by chance. “it was in 1954, I was 18 and I just graduated from high school. At that time, there was only one university in Sousse, offering either interpreting or midwife studies. Now, 35 years later, I think I made the right choice.”

For two decades, she provided assistance to thousands of women, before, during and after pregnancy. An eternal traveler who accompanied life-givers with passion and with patience, from Ksour Essaf to Korba, through Nabeul, and has returned few years ago to Ben Guerdane, her hometown, where she works in the Reproductive Health Center.

Sandstorms, Fires and Demonstrations Complicate Delivery of Assistance at Camp near Libyan Border

BEN GUERDEN, Tunisia —Tensions are rising near the Tunisian-Libyan border in the Choucha camp, home, for now, for more than 3,500 third-national refugees. Some are in transit waiting to be repatriated. However, others, many among them Eritreans and Somalis, are in limbo. Their home countries still beset by conflict, they are hoping to be granted asylum in a third country.

Prevention and Response to Sexual and Gender Based Violence


UNFPA leads the Prevention and the Response to Sexual and Gender Based Violence
At least one in three of the world’s female population has been either physically or sexually abused at some time in her life.
Although in most countries little research has been conducted on the problem, available data suggest that in some countries nearly one in four women may experience sexual violence by an intimate partner, and up to one-third of adolescent girls report their first sexual experience as being forced.
In the context of armed conflict and displacement, sexual violence, including exploitation and abuse, is a well known and high risk problem.
Sexual violence is often used as a weapon of war, targeting civilian women and children.

May 5, 2011 - Message from the Executive Director of UNFPA

International Day of the Midwife

More than one in three women in developing countries give birth alone -- or with only relatives to oversee what is one of the most dangerous passages they will ever undergo.

In some of the poorest countries, as few as 13 per cent of all deliveries are assisted by a midwife or a health worker with midwifery skills.

Every day, 1,000 women die and 5,500 newborns die in the first week of life for lack of adequate medical care.
The current global shortage of some 350,000 professional midwives means that women and their newborns die from complications that could have been easily prevented by a health worker with the right skills, the right equipment and the right support. Midwives are the unsung heroes of maternal and newborn health.
