Global Voices for Maternal Health
|Department||Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology|
Our mission is to make community-level actors the major protagonists in identifying and solving the barriers to preventing unnecessary maternal deaths. By providing doctors, nurses and midwives across Africa, Asia and Latin America with a direct global voice we will harness their combined experience and insight to kick-start a revolution in the local provision of evidence-based maternal healthcare.
This will be achieved through an innovative online crowd-sourcing exercise seeking the perspectives of, and pragmatic input from, ten thousand maternal healthcare providers in the developing world. The unprecedented scale of the survey will give new weight to the views of those on the frontline, strengthening their voices on the international stage and deepening their involvement in the global fight to reduce maternal mortality.
