‘ICM-UNFPA Panel on the State of the World’s Midwifery Report (SOWMY) 2014’: meeting report

Posted by Share-Net NL on July 24, 2014 at 4:08 am

The State of the World’s Midwifery 2014 report was launched in Prague at the Triennial Congress of the International Confederation of Midwives. It brings a new analysis of midwifery services across the 75 Countdown countries that collectively represent more than 95% of the burden of maternal, new-born and child mortality. The report places midwifery firmly at the core of delivering maternal and new-born health and achieving the right to health. At the global and country level, it analyses the current deficit in human resource availability, accessibility, acceptability and quality, while also projecting future human resource needs, supply and feasibility of scale-up. You can access the report in our resource centre. There you will also find a toolkit on how to apply the evidence.

On the 25th of June a meeting was organised at KIT by Share-Net and chaired by the Ministry of Foreign affairs to present the SoWMy report. Presentations held by:

  • Laura Laski, Chief, Sexual and Reproductive Health at UNFPA
  • Frances Day-Stirk, ICM president
  • Luc de Bernis, Senior Maternal Health Adviser at the Technical Division of the UNFPA
  • Renate Douwes, Programme Officer SRHR, Simavi
