Strategy & Reports

The ICM’s triennial strategy looks forward, building on our strengths and successes while proactively shaping the future of the midwifery profession. Recalibrating our approach every three years is not just a practice but a commitment to staying relevant and innovative. Every year, we report on our progress through our annual reports, an essential tool to celebrate wins and measure the resonance of our strategy in an ever-shifting landscape.

Our Strategic Plan

ICM’s Triennial Strategic Plan (2024-2026) includes four pivotal priorities that are critical to advancing continuity of midwife care models of practice, and midwifery more broadly, ultimately leading to better sexual, reproductive, maternal, newborn, and adolescent health (SRMNAH) outcomes:

  1. Drive innovation, leadership, and sustainability for the future of midwifery.
  2. Support the dissemination and implementation of the Professional Framework for Midwifery.
  3. Collaborate with partners to grow the movement for midwifery and elevate the role of midwives as competent and respected healthcare providers who put women’s voices at the centre.
  4. Work in partnership to ensure member associations are prepared and well positioned to respond to emergent humanitarian and climate crises.
