Report Launch

  • USAID’s new 2020 Acting on the Call report highlights ongoing maternal and child survival efforts in 25 priority countries and focuses on the key role that nurses and midwives play in saving maternal, newborn, and child lives. Hear from USAID Deputy Administrator, Bonnie Glick, on progress this past year and why we must not lose sight of our collective maternal and child survival goals during the COVID-19 pandemic. https://www.usaid.gov/ActingOnTheCall [TAG: @USAID Global Health]

Achieving Optimal Coverage of Skilled Nurses and Midwives

  • Nurses and midwives are at the core of a strong global health workforce, but in many of the countries where USAID works, shortages of skilled health providers, including nurses and midwives, exist. This year’s Acting on the Call report highlights the central role that nurses and midwives play in reducing maternal and child mortality and shares some of the ways that USAID empowers nurses and midwives with the skills for success. https://www.usaid.gov/ActingOnTheCall [TAG: @USAID Global Health]

Advancing Quality Across the Continuum of Care

  • Over the last four years, USAID has helped 13.4 million women deliver their baby safely in a health facility. Through a partnership with Merck for Mothers, USAID reduced institutional maternal deaths by 66 percent and perinatal deaths by 47 percent in Nigeria in 2019 by providing antenatal services and emergency transportation. Thanks to our initiatives to increase access to maternal care, mothers like Cynthia have the right care to safely deliver their children.
