Midwives voices Needed!

Your voice is urgently needed: The WHO together with partners have drafted an action plan to end preventable newborn deaths (Every Newborn Action Plan). The draft is now online for a public consultation process with the deadline on the 28th of February. It is crucial that midwives have an input as the plan will affect midwives in their work and midwifery on a global level. 

The Every Newborn action plan will provide everyone with a roadmap and joint action platform for the reduction of preventable newborn mortality. Linking the work of all stakeholders, it will enable policy makers and others to take action to accelerate national plans to achieve clear results for newborn survival, enhancing the achievement of wider goals for women’s and children’s health. It will define the role and responsibilities of stakeholders, setting out a vision, targets and objectives, with recommended key actions to implement based on proven strategies for change and the latest evidence on effectiveness, costs and expected impact of interventions.

Don’t miss this opportunity to make your voice heard and make sure the midwife perspective is included in the plan! Click here to comment.
