50,000 Happy Birthdays: A Call for Proposals

More than 100 midwife associations representing 113 countries across every continent came together for the 31st International Confederation of Midwives (ICM) Triennial Congress at Toronto, Canada, where Laerdal hosted a panel discussion on the 10,000 Happy Birthdays project with ICM, Jhpiego, and the Malawi & Zambia midwifery associations. This discussion focused on the challenges and successes of the 10,000 Happy Birthdays project, and culminated to a very exciting Call to Action of five more countries to join the project with a goal of 50,000 more happy birthdays.
