University of Oxford with support from Maternal Health Task Force: Global Voices for Maternal Health
Global Voices for Maternal Health is a ground-breaking new web-based project that will be launched in mid-2010 by the University of Oxford, supported by the Maternal Health Task Force.
The project aims to give doctors, nurses and midwives across Africa, Asia and Latin America a direct global voice about the problems they face in delivering lifesaving maternal healthcare, bringing them centre‐stage in determining where future efforts of the global community need to be focused.
The project will have two elements:
- Firstly, an online survey of over 10,000 maternal healthcare providers in developing countries about the barriers preventing the implementation of safe, effective and affordable treatments in their settings.
- Secondly, the website will host an innovative crowd‐sourcing discussion hub where we will seek suggestions of new and innovative solutions to overcome these obstacles.
In order to achieve the project’s goals the organisers need to reach the doctors, nurses and midwives working on the ground in Africa, Asia and Latin America so that they can get their voice heard. They have asked Immpact, and other organisations involved in maternal healthcare to help promote the survey and secure the responses they need.
