THE WHITE RIBBON ALLIANCE
FOR SAFE MOTHERHOOD, INDIA

The National Safe Motherhood Day Campaigns

One of our greatest advocacy achievements is the declaration of the National Safe Motherhood Day by the government of India. India is the first country in the world to have an officially declared National Safe Motherhood Day and we utilize this day to launch nationwide campaigns to advocate for the right of each and every woman to live and survive pregnancy and childbirth.

Our National Safe Motherhood Day campaigns have included, but not limited to, Respectful Maternity Care, Quality of Care, Birth Preparedness and Complication Readiness (BP/CR), Safe Motherhood as a Human Right and Citizen Engagement.
