Opportunities with the Canadian Association of Midwives' Global Program
This webinar showcases the Canadian Association of Midwives' (CAM) partnership with midwifery associations around the world to strengthen the profession and contribute to improving reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health outcomes globally. CAM's approach is rooted in the ICM twinning principles of mutual capacity building, equality and sharing of best practices. Since 2009, CAM has been collaborating on international projects that support the three pillars of midwifery (education, regulation and association). Learn how Canada's midwives are supporting these goals and how you can get involved in CAM's global program!
