Project Aisha

Project Aisha- Strengthening Systems for Safer Childbirth Initiative S3C is a three-year-long intervention funded by Merck for Mothers in Lagos and Kaduna, focused on ensuring challenged and mixed health systems improve quality of care and maternal and newborn health outcomes in Nigeria.           S3C is a collective action to accelerate progress in ending preventable maternal deaths. The project will advance the objectives of improving the quality of care of maternal and child health outcomes by addressing the systemic drivers of maternal deaths and obstetric complications within the health system in Nigeria 

Aisha means "Alive and Well". The project was named for the outcomes we are working towards in women and their newborns as we proceed in the communities and facilities we work with. 


Ingress Health Partners is the community partner in the Project Aisha consortium.  We are focused on enhancing the practice of the Private Practice Nurse Midwife, the most highly skilled birth attendant in communities apart from Physicians.


We optimize the capacity of the Traditional Birth Attendant to recognize danger signs and ensure timely complete referrals to minimize obstetric and perinatal deaths

Within the Project Aisha consortium, Ingress Health Partners is also providing Technical Support to the Lagos State Primary Healthcare Board Group as they roll out Group Antenatal Care services
