Safe Motherhood Week

This year for Safe Motherhood Week (SMW) we are “Upholding maternal rights in times of crises”.

The COVID pandemic and war in the Ukraine has strained health systems affecting even more vulnerable people – , such as migrants and mothers with precarious health conditions.
Are you a mother with preexisting health conditions?

Coronavirus Pandemic

The world is currently facing trying times, with a pandemic
that threatens the fabric of society. We have put together a
COVID-19 resource hub to provide pregnant and breastfeeding
women as well as all stakeholders involved in maternal health
with relevant material and information.

Investing in safer motherhood means investing in the future

The Motherhood Collective Impact program (MCIP) is a not-for-profit
partnership that aims to address the most challenging issues in maternal
health by taking a new, co-impact and systems-based approach.

Maternal Health Synapse

Bring global visibility to your maternal & neonatal health activities, find partners and best practices, and solve maternal health challenges in an efficient, sustainable way.
