Group Advocates To Improve Maternal Health

In the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s “Impatient Optimists” blog, public health worker Debra Bingham discusses the activities of the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric & Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN). “AWHONN believes that all women should have access to efficacious treatments from trained and supported health workers when they are needed regardless of where they call home. It is for these reasons that AWHONN is committed to educating American policymakers about their role in women’s health in the U.S. and abroad,” she writes (1/13).
