Health Care Professionals Honoring Women's Demands for Respectful Care
More than 1.2 million women from 114 countries took part in the global What Women Want campaign and identified respect and dignity as one of their top priorities for quality healthcare.
Now, it is time for professionals to honor women’s demands and respond to the need for respect and dignity during the continuum of care – from reproductive health to pregnancy, childbirth, post-delivery, breastfeeding, care after stillbirth and maternal or newborn death.
During this event, professional organizations supporting women and families throughout the continuum of reproductive, maternal and newborn care will receive women’s demands and commit to accelerate efforts to deliver what women need and is important for them and their families.
Please read women’s demands and how professional organizations can honor them here.
