Empowering Midwives for a stronger Haiti
FAHM is proud to celebrate The International Day of the Midwife. This year's theme is “Follow the Data: Invest in Midwives.” Thanks to your support, FAHM continues to join forces with our Haitian Midwife partners to advocate for investment in quality midwifery care, improving sexual, reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health care in Haiti.
Exciting news.... The 2021 State of the World's Midwifery (SoWMy) Report will be released today! Co-led by UNFPA, WHO and ICM, SoWMy 2021 provides an updated evidence base and detailed analysis on the impact of midwives on maternal and newborn health outcomes and the return on investment in midwives. Check it out: unfpa.org/sowmy
Midwives are fundamental to improving quality maternal and newborn care and ending preventable maternal and newborn deaths. We salute them always and especially on this special day.
A special thank you and acknowledgment to FAHM's Midwives: Karen Jefferson, Thamy Crevecoeur, Martine Jean-Baptiste, Stephanie Etienne and Lodz Joseph Lemon. Thank you for your dedication to improving maternal/child health in Haiti and the USA.
