CORONAVIRUS EMERGENCY

PROTECT MIDWIVES, PREGNANT WOMEN AND NEWBORNS

Pregnant women, new mothers and newborns urgently need your help

With health-care systems at risk of collapsing, we are urgently supplying life-saving medical equipment to help our front-line health workers save mothers and babies. We are:

  • Sending critical medical supplies, hygiene and sanitary items, and personal protective equipment for health-care workers to safely treat coronavirus patients and to reduce the risk of infection, especially among pregnant women;
  • Building the capacity of health systems to ensure access to sexual and reproductive health services for women, especially pregnant women, young people and vulnerable communities impacted by the pandemic;
  • Ensuring that pregnant and breastfeeding women, including those under quarantine, are prioritized for health care and psychosocial support.

We CAN reach more people in need with your help today.

With your donation you will help UNFPA in its mission to:
