Last week a couple of ONE staffers attended the Women Deliver conference in Washington D.C. In what was arguably the world’s largest conference on maternal health and empowerment in more than a decade. The 3 day event was essentially a global gathering to share stories, best practice and calls to action on the prevention of maternal deaths around the world.
It was at Women Deliver that Melinda Gates stressed the importance of maternal and child health as a global health priority.
At the conference we met Awatif Altayib Mohamad Hussein, a midwife from Sudan who was kind enough to share her story with us.
