Health Care Professionals Honoring Women’s Demands for Respectful Care

This is a parallel event during the Commission on the Status of Women | More than 1.2 million women from 114 countries took part in the global What Women Want campaign and identified respect and dignity as one of their top priorities for quality healthcare. Now, it is time for professional associations to honor women’s demands and respond to the need for respect and dignity during the continuum of care – from reproductive health to pregnancy, childbirth, post-delivery, breastfeeding, care after stillbirth and maternal or newborn death. During this event, professional organizations supporting women and families throughout the continuum of RMNCH care will receive women’s demands publicly. Global professional associations (FIGO, ICM, ICN, IPA and COINN) will accept the demands and commit to accelerate efforts to deliver what women need and is important for them and their families.
