Thanks in part to your support, the Office of Global Women’s Health is able to address issues of maternal mortality and morbidity and to improve women’s health globally.
According to the World Health Organization, complications during pregnancy and childbirth are a leading cause of death and disability among women of reproductive age in developing countries. In 2015, it was reported that about 830 women die from pregnancy- or childbirth-related complications every day. Almost all of those cases are preventable.
To help address these issues, the Office of Global Women's Health works to ...
Enhance team-based care, quality improvement, and advocacy to improve women’s health care
Improve medical education, residency programs, and continuing education
Share the best science and latest evidence-based guidelines on women’s health appropriate to low-resource settings
Build health care teams to provide appropriate obstetric care, integrate family planning and immunizations, and provide other health interventions
