ISF Partner: The White Ribbon Alliance (WRA – http://whiteribbonalliance.org).
Programme: The White Ribbon Alliance is a major US charity dedicated to safe motherhood worldwide, especially in emerging and developing countries. ISF has supported the WRA in the development of self-care as a cost-effective solution for maternal, newborn and child health, through teleconferences, a webinar and Twitter. The WRA has used the ISF framework for self-care, the “7 pillars of self-care”, in their latest policy paper (“Self Care. A Cost Effective Solution for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health”.
The WRA has also made extensive use each year of International Self-Care Day to advance the vital agenda for maternal, newborn and child health.
