About this information

In June 2016, as part of the Open Government Action Plan, the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat (TBS) committed to increasing the transparency and usefulness of grants and contribution data and subsequently launched the Guidelines on the Reporting of Grants and Contributions Awards, effective April 1, 2018.

The rules and principles governing government grants and contributions are outlined in the Treasury Board Policy on Transfer Payments. Transfer payments are transfers of money, goods, services or assets made from an appropriation to individuals, organizations or other levels of government, without the federal government directly receiving goods or services in return, but which may require the recipient to provide a report or other information subsequent to receiving payment. These expenditures are reported in the Public Accounts of Canada. The major types of transfer payments are grants, contributions and 'other transfer payments'.

Included in this category, but not to be reported under proactive disclosure of awards, are (1) transfers to other levels of government such as Equalization payments as well as Canada Health and Social Transfer payments. (2) Grants and contributions reallocated or otherwise redistributed by the recipient to third parties; and (3) information that would normally be withheld under the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act.

Description:

P001197001: The project aims to increase the availability of skilled health care providers, especially midwives, in order to reduce maternal and infant mortality in South Sudan. The project builds on results from two previous projects: Training Midwives and Deploying Midwives in South Sudan. It supports six national training institutes delivering midwifery and nursing education in South Sudan, where a total of 850 health workers, including 650 midwives, are expected to complete training under the project. Project activities include: (1) developing a new curriculum for nurses and clinical officers; (2) obtaining the equipment required and improving the ability of the faculty members and administrative staff at the training institutes to teach and manage the midwifery and nursing programs; (3) mentoring of students and health care providers by international and national UN volunteer midwives during clinical practice to ensure the application of their skills; (3) training given by doctors working in health facilities to encourage a team approach in the provisions of midwifery and obstetric services; and (4) improving the ability of the Ministry of Health to manage and regulate the education of midwives and the ability of South Sudan's national and state-level Nursing and Midwifery Associations to advocate and promote their professions.

The project is implemented in partnership with the Canadian Association of Midwives (CAM). CAM will provide direct peer to peer mentoring support and technical expertise from practicing Canadian midwives and midwifery educators. In addition, the Canadian Midwifery Regulators Consortium will help to strengthen regulatory and licensing frameworks for the midwifery profession, and the Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada will provide technical expertise in the updating of the curriculum and training modules in obstetrics and gynecology for doctors and medical officers.

P001197004: In 2020, the Strengthening Midwifery Services in South Sudan - Phase II project received an increase of $4.2 million. These additional funds will ensure that the original project's objectives are achieved while adapting to the changing context in South Sudan. The Strengthening Midwifery Services II project aims to increase skilled healthcare providers' availability, especially midwives, to increase access to sexual and reproductive health services and decrease maternal and infant mortality in South Sudan. By building on Phase I, this project aims to ensure that all midwifery, nursing, and other medical students currently enrolled in training programs can successfully complete their studies and enter the workforce to save mothers and babies' lives.

Project activities include: (1) developing a new curriculum for nurses and clinical officers; (2) obtaining the equipment required and improving the ability of the faculty members and administrative staff at the training institutes to teach and manage the midwifery and nursing programs; (3) mentoring students and health care providers by international and national UN volunteer midwives during clinical practice to ensure the application of their skills; (3) training given by doctors working in health facilities to encourage a team approach in the provisions of midwifery and obstetric services; and (4) improving the ability of the Ministry of Health to manage and regulate the education of midwives and the ability of South Sudan's national and state-level Nursing and Midwifery Associations to advocate and promote their professions. The project works in partnership with the Canadian Association of Midwives (CAM), which provides direct peer-to-peer mentoring support and technical expertise from practicing Canadian midwives and midwifery educators.

Expected Results:

P001197001: The expected intermediate results for this project include: (1) improved delivery of quality gender-sensitive and environmentally sustainable education for health care providers in South Sudan; (2) improved delivery of gender-sensitive and environmentally sound maternal, newborn, and child health services by midwives, nurses, clinical officers and other health care professionals in targeted health facilities in South Sudan; and (3) strengthened enabling environment at the national and state level to facilitate gender-sensitive midwifery and obstetrics practices in South Sudan.

This project is part of Canada's maternal, newborn, and child health commitment.
