Collaboration: We recognize the value of cooperation and synergy generation with a variety of stakeholders (such as families, community leaders, governments, other health care providers, etc), from the local to the global level.
Diversity: We celebrate the richness of diversity, and include varied beliefs and practices throughout our work.
Sustainability: We seek to build long-term sustainability for individual midwives, and midwifery care in community and facility settings.
Integrity: We manage our relationships, commitments and resources with respect and honesty.
