Mors Dag

Siden 2007 har Maternity Foundation markeret Mors Dag med kampagnen “Red en mors liv på Mors Dag”, som støtter kampen mod mødredødelighed i udviklingslande. Der er sket store fremskridt på området, men 830 kvinder dør stadig hver dag under graviditet og fødsel. Langt de fleste i udviklingslandene, hvor størstedelen af dødsfaldene kunne være forebygget, hvis mødrene havde haft adgang til uddannet fødselshjælp under deres graviditet og fødsel.

Som optakt til Mors Dag søndag d. 14. maj 2017 lancerer vi igen i år kampagnen og den talentfulde danske kunstner Sofie Bird Møller står bag årets Mors Dag-kort. Alle indtægter fra salget af kortet går ubeskåret til Maternity Foundations arbejde med at redde kvinders og børns liv i forbindelse med graviditet og fødsel.

The Safe Delivery App

The Safe Delivery App is a smartphone application that provides skilled birth attendants with direct and instant access to evidence-based and up-to-date clinical guidelines on Basic Emergency Obstetric and Neonatal Care. The App leverages the growing ubiquity of mobile phones to provide life-saving information and guidance through easy-to-understand animated instruction videos, action cards and drug lists. It can serve as a training tool both in pre- and in-service training, and equips birth attendants even in the most remote areas with a powerful on-the-job reference tool. The App was created in 2012 with support from MSD for Mothers, and in collaboration with the University of Copenhagen and the University of Southern Denmark.
