Get ready for the Second Global Midwifery Symposium at the end of May in Kuala Lumpur. The topic is "Strengthening Quality Midwifery Care: Making Strides, Addressing Challenges".
The first Global Midwifery Symposium in 2010 became a turning point in raising global visibility towards the need for addressing midwifery and human resources for health issues. Following the Symposium, the first ever State of the Midwifery Report was launched. Since then, there have been major landmark achievements, but the momentum must not be lost and the second Global Midwifery Symposium is an opportunity to renew the committments towards midwifery. We will be posting News updates during the Symposium as well as the Women Deliver Conference and we will keep you posted through Facebook. You can follow the panels through our Live Tweets.
