International Day of the Midwife 2012

In 2012 the International Day of the Midwife built on the achievements of the Road to Durban campaign in 2011, engaging stakeholders and providing a powerful platform to campaign globally for commitments to investing in midwifery education, employment and deployment.

In 2012 the message that ‘the world needs midwives more than ever’ was as relevant,strengthened by the evidence in  The State of the World’s Midwifery Report 2011 (SOWMR) and PMNCH report Essential Interventions, Commodities and Guidelines for Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn and Child Health. Both provide substantial independent evidence to support the case that adequately educated and resourced professional midwives are crucial to achieving MDGs 4&5. Further the message that ‘Midwives Save Lives’ is increasingly relevant as the 2015 deadline for realising the MDGs draws ever closer.
