Midwives are one of the health workers as a profession that continues to develop so that they must follow the developments and changes of globalization. The era of globalization demands the availability of professional human resources in providing services to the community. Therefore, it is necessary to develop a midwife education curriculum based on the needs of the times by comparing the midwife education curriculum in Indonesia, New Zealand, and Australia. The method used in writing this article uses a literature review in the form of a library synthesis compilation process. The stage was carried out by browsing the literature, finding the main idea of each article, and writing in a paraphrase style. This has done by collecting various references in the form of scientific articles and text books based on studies on the midwifery education curriculum in Indonesia, New Zealand, and Australia. Thus, the results of the comparative study of midwifery education curriculum aim to develop a midwife education curriculum that can produce professional midwife graduates in providing women-centred care.
