Midwifery: A Vital Service for Women's Health (Film Screening)

Wednesday, June 12 from 7:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.

2100 Fourth Avenue
Seattle, Washington 98121

Around the world, the public health community has undertaken a broad range of actions to eliminate preventable maternal mortality, enabling a decrease from over 500,000 deaths annually in 2000 when the Millennium Development Goals were drafted. As countries grapple with the hardest decreases – those at the tail end of the spectrum – new attention is being given to human resources for health: who provides maternal health care, and what training do they have? As a result, more attention is being given to the need to develop appropriate care givers who can provide quality care even in the most difficult environments. Join your colleagues for a special screening of Birth Wars and discussion with award-winning filmmaker Janet Jarman and a special guest featured in the film.

Space is limited. Please confirm your attendance with Mireille Posse
