Health Policy Project and White Ribbon Alliance release video, and translated advocacy materials to promote respectful maternity care

For its "Action of the Month" for June, the White Ribbon Alliance (WRA) is calling for support to advocate for respectful maternity care. With support from the Health Policy Project, the WRA convened a multi-sector group to develop the Respectful Maternity Care Charter: The Universal Rights of Childbearing Women, as well as a video and advocacy materials to support the promotion of the charter.

To find out more about how you can take action and spread the word about respectful maternity care, visit the WRA website.

The charter builds a strong positive global standard for Respectful Maternity Care to affirm the legitimacy of maternal health rights as basic human rights issues grounded in key international declarations. The charter can be used as a platform to talk about the problem of disrespect and abuse during maternity care within a positive, right-based framework, so that the “Veil of Silence” on this issue may begin to be lifted.
