As the G8/G20 Summit approaches with a theme of saving the lives of women and children, Chaordix™ works with Oxford University to find ways to deliver safe and effective medical care to women worldwide
Launched this week, Global Voices for Maternal Health gives doctors, nurses and midwives worldwide a voice in how best to provide care to pregnant women in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. Hosted by Oxford University’s Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Global Voices enables people on the maternal healthcare frontlines to discuss the problems faced, and identify healthcare solutions to decrease the number of women dying unnecessarily in childbirth every year.
Maternal Health is a global focus right now. Working with Oxford on this project means we’re doing what we can to contribute to finding ways to deliver safe and effective medical care to more women worldwide. We’ve observed with concern that Canada seems to be backpedaling in our support of family planning initiatives in developing nations. By applying crowdsourcing to advance maternal health, we are standing up alongside leaders such as Melinda Gates and Hillary Clinton in bringing awareness to this issue.
The Chaordix powered community – Global Voices for Maternal Health – aims to give thousands of midwives, nurses and doctors around the world a direct voice about the problems they face in delivering lifesaving maternal healthcare. Dozens of topics will be broadcast to healthcare practitioners to provoke innovative methods to overcome maternal health barriers.
