Safe Motherhood for All Inc.

seeks your support for the campaign to have an International Day for Maternal Health and Rights

Every woman has the right to a dignified pregnancy, a safe delivery, and access to the skilled care that will help ensure both happen. Take a stand and join the worldwide movement to ensure that every woman has access to integrated maternity care.

Maternal health advocates, researchers, and providers are committed to ending human rights abuses and promoting skilled and dignified maternity care as disrespect and abuse of women within health care settings deter women from seeking and receiving quality maternal health care.

April 11 2016, will be the third call to action to establish an International Day for Maternal Health and Rights.  You can show your support on (or before) April 11th:

  1. Please sign the petition calling on the UN Secretary General to officially recognize this date in support of global maternal health. Sign the petition to the UN Secretary General
  2. Join the #IntlMHDay Twitter Chat Relay, April 11 starting at 9:30 AM EST
