In occasione della Giornata Internazionale per la Salute e i Diritti delle Madri, l’11 aprile 2018, inizia il sondaggio globale What Women Want – Cosa vogliono le donne. OVOItalia partecipa al sondaggio globale rivolto alle donne e alle ragazze per sapere cosa vogliono per la loro salute materna e riproduttiva. Una sola domanda. Un solo obiettivo: raccogliere un milione di proposte in tutto il mondo per migliorare l’assistenza sanitaria nella salute materna e riproduttiva.
The What Women Want survey, launching today to mark #IntlMHDay, offers the opportunity for girls and women everywhere to share what health issues they believe need to be addressed globally—and child marriage should be one of them. The practice scars young girls economically and often physically, and infringes on their most basic rights as girls and often as young mothers.
E4A-MamaYe is proud to be a partner in a global campaign that will put women’s voices at the centre of healthcare.Quality means different things to different people. This week, E4A-MamaYe has been asking members of its own team about their one ask for quality maternal and reproductive healthcare. The responses from Nigeria and Kenya show the diversity of what women want.
Conversations around respectful maternity care don’t often center around toilets (or even mention them). But the environment a woman gives birth in – the cleanliness of the facility and the availability of water and sanitation – can profoundly affect her experience, in addition to the health of both mother and child. Read more from WaterAid about #WhatWomenWant and the need for clean water for quality maternal and reproductive healthcare.
The What Women Want campaign is about the women, girls and partners involved. Please share any quotes, pictures, or stories from women, girls and organizations so that, together, we can let the world know what quality healthcare looks like to women and girls and the efforts being made to realize it around the world.
When women receive quality healthcare, they tell their sisters, daughters, friends and neighbors. Quality health services are born from involving those they are meant for; it’s not enough to encourage women and girls to seek care from trained midwives, health clinics or hospitals, the care they receive must meet their needs.
