Answer the survey and contribute to a better motherhood experience for women

Join Safe Motherhood Week 2019

THE THEME IS “Accessibility to Quality Maternal Care and Safe Medication”

Pregnancy is an experience that affects almost everyone.
But information on the use of medicine during pregnancy and breastfeeding is fragmented, open to interpretation, or sometimes non-existent. Severe inequalities persist when it comes to access to care and medicines for future mothers.

Our vision is a world where all women have equitable access to high-quality maternal care before, during and after the pregnancy experience. That’s why Safe Motherhood Week advocates for “Accessibility to Quality Maternal Care and Safe Medication”.

Together with ConcePTION (IMI funded initiative), we work on understanding what kind of information women need during pregnancy and breastfeeding and how they would prefer to receive that information.
