Aligning evidence and policy for post-2015: A review of country approaches to plan the production and supply of midwives
This study aims to identify and collate the available data on national workforce planning for midwives in the countries represented by ICM associations. The output of the study will be a global public good to inform workforce planning and policy decision making on universal access to midwifery services and maternal newborn and child health.
Study data was collected in each of the 101 countries through an online self-completion questionnaire (available in English, French and Spanish), issued to representatives of the 116 ICM Member Associations. The questionnaire was jointly developed by staff at ICS Integrare and ICM and accounts for the heterogeneity of workforce planning approaches across low-, middle- and high-income countries.
