What We Do
HP+, through our partner the White Ribbon Alliance, is working closely with the World Health Organization and International Confederation of Midwives to promote high-quality maternity care through increased access to midwifery services. Grounded in global frameworks—such as Ending Preventable Maternal Mortality; Every Woman, Every Child; Every Newborn Action Plan; and Ending Preventable Child and Maternal Deaths—and the The Lancet midwifery series research priorities, we are working to:
- Convene a global coordinating group for midwifery
- Survey the number of midwives in high-level positions
- Promote midwives in leadership positions
- Train midwives as citizen journalists
What I Want is Simple
White Ribbon Alliance, HP+, and USAID asked mothers around the world what they needed for a healthy and happy life. Together, we can create a world where the right of all women to be safe and healthy before, during and after childbirth is upheld.
