Help us document what is happening taken in maternity care services in your country – send us a submission by Friday, 10 July 2020.
The COVID pandemic is having an enormous impact on maternity care around the world. Minute by minute, day by day, practices and norms are changing, often to the detriment of women’s rights in childbirth. HRiC has already prepared and submitted a first report on maternity care violations during COVID-19, and it has become clear that the problems continue and a second report is necessary.
Help Human Rights in Childbirth document these changes – let us know what is going on in your country, and provide us with links to reports, new guidelines, blog posts that are documenting what is happening. We will use this documentation to build a bank of information of what is happening “on the ground”. We will use your report in our advocacy work towards international organizations and bodies.
If you do not have documentation, you can leave us a short report, preferably in English but we will do our best to translate if you are writing in another language.
Please report changes in maternity care such as:
IF YOU ARE FACING MORE THAN ONE ISSUE OR HAVE MORE THAN ONE REPORT TO CITE, PLEASE SUBMIT ONE FORM FOR EACH ISSUE OR REPORT (e.g. submit a few reports instead of putting everything into one).
Please, also share examples of good practices! They exist and need to be documented.
