The COVID-19 crisis is worsening conditions for women across the world, disrupting access to reproductive health services. In developing regions, according to data from the World Health Organization and UNPF, more than 800 women die every day from causes related to pregnancy or childbirth. In addition, mother and baby should not just survive childbirth, but also thrive in well-guided and supported pre- and post-natal care.
“Mothers and expectant mothers have the same needs, desires and necessity for quality care wherever they live.”
