Global Reach of ICM
ICM advocacy highlights the crucial role of midwives in maternal, newborn and child health especially in achieving MDGs 4 and 5. The ICM Global Standards are essential to a universally agreed basic standard of midwifery education. Healthcare organisations must all work together to influence funding agencies and governments to develop, improve and sustain midwifery education. Alliances need to be developed for enhancing advocacy for better midwifery services.
