Maternity Foundation’s 2020 Impact Report
2020 turned out to be very different than any of us had expected as the corona-pandemic started to soar the globe in early spring. At Maternity Foundation, this meant that we had to quickly change our ways of working to ensure we could still reach and support midwives and other healthcare workers in a time where their training and working conditions were more important than ever.
Women continue to get pregnant and give birth, health crisis or not. As a consequence, pregnant women, new mothers, newborns, and the health personnel providing them care have faced great risks in the new reality brought by COVID-19, especially in low-resource countries and settings affected by conflict.
As we look back on 2020, it has become clearer than ever that we need to rethink the way we train and support frontline health workers, so they can have the best possible working conditions – pandemic or not.
For Maternity Foundation, this has resulted in a shift towards even more digital tools, remote trainings and innovate ways of collaborating with partners across the globe to work fast, effectively and together to support frontline health workers everywhere.
We are happy to share our 2020 Impact Report, diving into projects, partnerships and results from the past year as we look forward to a busy and impactful 2021.
