Celebrating the International Day of the Midwife

United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 3.8 is to achieve universal health coverage by 2030.

A larger, fully enabled midwifery workforce would increase women’s, children’s and adolescents’ access to health care. That is to say: investing in midwives will strengthen the primary healthcare system and provide a pathway to universal health coverage.

That is why we are committed to provide continued training for pre-service and in-service midwives.
