Disrespect and abuse during childbirth is not only a human rights violation, but also has significant implications for maternal and neonatal health. Join the Center for Health and Gender Equity (CHANGE) this Tuesday, November 11th, from 10 A.M. to 12 P.M. EST for their webinar, “Disrespect & Abuse during Childbirth: Emerging Evidence to Inform Policy Advocacy.”
This webinar will feature experts from Columbia University, Population Council, the World Health Organization (WHO), and CHANGE. Through this webinar you will be able to effectively understand and advocate for policy change by becoming familiar with recent research on disrespect and abuse from the field.
As a sponsor of the recent WHO consensus statement, “Prevention and elimination of disrespect and abuse during childbirth,” the MHTF is committed to supporting women and improving maternal and neonatal health through eliminating disrespect and abuse and promoting respectful maternity care.
Please RSVP and join us Tuesday as we work together to support women around the world at one of the most critical times in their lives.
