International Confederation of Midwives

The State of the World’s Midwifery (SoWMy) 2021 demonstrates that investing in midwives could save millions of lives each year, improving national and local economies and contributing to women’s empowerment and gender equality.

ICM will foster a movement for midwifery, enabling and strengthening partnerships, advocacy, and communications for midwifery, with women’s voices at the center and ensure training and recruitment of midwives to increase the availability, accessibility, and quality of comprehensive sexual, reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health (SRMNCAH) services with an added focus on abortion and contraception services.
