International Day of the Midwife (5 May)
The International Confederation of Midwives (ICM) supports, represents and works to strengthen professional associations of midwives throughout the world.
Follow the data, invest in midwives – that’s the theme of the 2021 International Day of the Midwife, and it is through this lens that ICM will lead the ongoing and growing efforts to centre midwives as fundamental to ending preventable maternal and newborn death and achieving SDG 3.1 (reduce the global maternal mortality ratio to less than 70 per 100 000 live births by 2030).
