Group Of Young Midwives From 31 Countries Publishes Declaration Of Commitment, Global Call For Action

The Lancet Global Health Blog: Young midwife leaders speak: a declaration of commitment and global call for action
“We are 32 midwives from 31 countries around the world who attended the Women Deliver 2016 meeting. … This declaration of commitment and global call for action was borne out of a series of questions put to us by the International Confederation of Midwives’ Young Midwifery Leaders program on our perceived abilities, empowerment, and challenges; what we saw as opportunities for improved access to high quality midwifery care in our communities and countries; and the challenges associated with seizing those opportunities. … We call for a unified voice and collaborative action on midwifery to ensure all women, newborns, and their families have access to the best possible quality of respectful midwifery care…” (8/10).
