Celebrate International Women’s Day with the MHTF

Posted on

In honor of International Women’s Day (March 8th), the Maternal Health Task Force is planning to highlight the important work that your organization is doing to improve the health of women around the world.


Last year, the MHTF invited you to submit 100 words describing the most important thing your organization was doing to improve maternal health and we showcased your submissions on our website.


We are excited to highlight your work again this year. For 2012, we plan to spread the word about your work on a special page on our website as well as throughout the Twittersphere.


In 100 characters or less, we invite you to share what your organization is doing to…


…support or train the next generation of maternal health professionals.
…improve the quality of maternal health care in high burden countries.
…expand access to emerging knowledge and evidence in maternal health.
…strengthen maternal health leadership and technical capacity.
…encourage innovation to improve maternal health globally.


In addition to your 100 characters, feel free to also include a link to your site or to a specific page on your site that we’ll shorten to include in your post. (We are asking for 100 characters of text only so that we will have space to include standard hashtags.)


Your submission does not need to be all inclusive of what your organization does. Just share one really exciting component of your work that you would like to highlight to the world this International Women’s Day.


Please send your submissions to Kate Mitchell by Thursday, March 1st. Thanks in advance for celebrating this important day with us!
