Every month, the Alliance secretariat invites a member organization to become “Featured Member” on the GHWA members’ e-platform. This is an opportunity for users of the e-platform to learn about the HRH work carried out by one of the several organizations that comprise the Alliance. CapacityPlus has been selected as March's Featured Member.
One million babies die on their first day of life, according to a new report by Save the Children, entitled Ending Newborn Deaths. Evidence shows that one half of first day deaths could be prevented if the mother and her baby had access to free health care and a skilled health worker.
Alliance members, The International Confederation of Midwives (ICM) and Save the Children will recognize and reward two midwives at the upcoming 2014 ICM Congress for their commitment to improving maternal and newborn survival in low-resource settings. Nominations are now open for the Excellence in Midwifery: 2014 International Midwife award and you are invited to make your nominations before 17 March 2014.
