Every 90 seconds a woman dies from complications of pregnancy and childbirth. You can help reverse these shocking statistics. Sign our pledge to help reduce needless deaths and ensure healthy outcomes for women worldwide.
The International Museum of Women (IMOW) has joined forces with Every Mother Counts, a global maternal health campaign, to create this Pledge. We will deliver the Pledge and your signature to governments and policy makers, culminating with a special presentation in conjunction with the UN General Assembly in September 2012. Your voice will be heard!
Signing our Pledge will provide you with campaign updates and opportunities to take action on global maternal health issues from Every Mother Counts. You will also receive occasional updates about new and inspiring content in the MAMA exhibition, which you can opt out of at any time.
To the Members of the UN General Assembly:
I believe that all women have a right to safe pregnancy and birth.
I ask my government to keep its commitment to the UN Goal to advance maternal health by 2015 - ensuring that all women have access to reproductive healthcare and reducing needless maternal deaths.
