The State of the World's Midwifery 2014 Report

The 2014 edition of The State of the World's Midwifery report was released at the International Confederation of Midwives 30th Triennial Congress in Prague. Produced by the United Nations Population Fund, the International Confederation of Midwives, the World Health Organization, and several other partners, the new report sheds light on midwives' important international role, the vast shortage of midwives across low- and middle-income countries, and the progress made since the inaugural report in 2011.

Lancet Series on Midwifery

The long-awaited Lancet Series on Midwifery has arrived. The series of 4 papers was produced by more than 35 academics, clinicians, professional midwives, policymakers, and advocates for women and children to provide evidence for implementing midwifery care strategies on a global scale. This landmark series builds on the State of the World’s Midwifery 2011 report and complements the State of the World’s Midwifery 2014 report.
