The Deliver study is an initiative of the Midwifery Academy Amsterdam Groningen, under the auspices of the Professional Midwifery Education Foundation (since 1861).

In 2011, the Midwifery Academie Amsterdam Groningen (AVAG) will be 150 years old. Such an anniversary affords a good opportunity to look back at the organization’s history, to consider ongoing developments and to contemplate the future. In connection with its approaching anniversary, AVAG has taken up this challenge and, in conjunction with NIVEL and the EMGO Institute, begun preparations for a study of Primary Midwifery Care in the Netherlands.

AVAG has made it part of its mission to make a substantial contribution to development of primary midwifery as a scientific domain.
