Positioning and Profiling of Midwifery
Positioning and Profiling of midwifery (P²M) is an advocacy tool for strengthening and scaling up, raising the profile of and enabling midwifery to take its position in health care provision in order to achieve the MDGs 4, 5 and 6. The goal is to have well positioned, strong Midwives Associations which are able to contribute effectively to maternal, newborn and child health in the country. They initiate dialogue between themselves, policy makers and stakeholders for the strengthening and scaling up of midwifery services.
ICM invites Midwives Associations, Governments, and other stakeholders to participate in this activity.
- Facilitate midwives to develop a vision, mission and strategy
