Coronavirus Emergency Appeal

Arrow Down

Pregnant women, new mothers and newborns urgently need your help

With health-care systems at risk of collapsing, we are urgently supplying lifesaving medical equipment to help our front-line health workers save mothers and babies. We are:

  • Sending critical medical supplies, hygiene and sanitary items, and personal protective equipment for health-care workers to safely treat coronavirus patients and to reduce the risk of infection, especially among pregnant women;
  • Building the capacity of health systems to ensure access to sexual and reproductive health services for women, especially pregnant women, young people and vulnerable communities impacted by the pandemic;
  • Ensuring that pregnant and breastfeeding women, including those under quarantine, are prioritized for health care and psychosocial support.

We CAN reach more people in need with your help today.
