With maternal and newborn death rates stagnating or reversing in many places, we need every tool available to save lives. This includes incorporating self-care approaches as part of the solution. Join White Ribbon Alliance and the Self-Care Trailblazer Group (SCTG) for a dynamic discussion on how self-care can support and transform the health of women and their newborns. What does the World Health Organization recommend as evidence-based self-care interventions for maternal and newborn health, and how are countries incorporating this into national guidelines? What are examples of effective advocacy at the country level to expand maternal and newborn health self-care practices? Find the answers to these questions and more at this virtual meeting.
