Did you hear the news? The International Confederation of Midwives (ICM), together with a number of global partners, have announced PUSH — a decade-long global movement for women and the midwives who protect and uphold their rights and bodily autonomy. PUSH will accelerate progress on reducing maternal and neonatal mortality, advance SRHR, address key barriers to women’s leadership in the global health workforce, and shift underlying gender norms that undervalue women’s rights, lives and work.

PUSH and partners invite you to attend, Local, Sustainable Healthcare Models: Midwives for the Future’, a virtual event taking place alongside the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on Monday, Sept 27th at 16:00 CET.

This panel discussion will bring together midwives and health experts from around the world. They will examine and exemplify why midwives and community-based models of care represent a sustainable path toward stronger health systems. Hosted by Franka Cadée, President of the ICM, panelists will explore: 

  • the intrinsic connection between resilience and midwifery,
  • why governments should look to midwives and their continuity of care model for guidance in preparing against future health threats, and
  • ensuring more sustainable maternity services in the long term.

We look forward to your participation.
