Maternal Mortality National Workshop 2020 - Transforming Maternal Care

Every year thousands of women die worldwide following complications during pregnancy or after child delivery. In response to the daily challenges facing mothers in Palestine, Juzoor conducted a national workshop on maternal mortality, in cooperation with the UNFPA, the Palestinian Ministry of Health and the Palestinian Gynecologists and Obstetricians Society. Due to the COVID-19 situation, the event was conducted online with the participation of 98 participants from different organizations.

We believe no woman should die giving life.

The workshop included presentations from the participants who explored maternal health inequities, the elimination of maternal mortality, the gaps and challenges, and opportunities for improvement. 

In an attempt to move forward, recommendations and an action plan was formulated which included, but not limited to improved health policies, improved antenatal help and qualified human resources, and to activate a national committee on maternal mortality where regular meetings are held.
