The current focus of the global health sector on the COVID-19 response poses a risk that investments in safe birth programmes will decline.

In this context, the UNFPA and Reckitt partnership represents a unique opportunity to ensure continued strategic global engagement and investments in safe birth programmes by bringing together the distinctive skills, resources and reach of leading international actors.

The project is “Safe Birth for All,” for women and girls in Mexico, the Philippines, and Thailand to have safe births, access family planning services and prevent adolescent pregnancies.

With a focus on vulnerable communities, the project has multiple dimensions tackling both short-term and long-term objectives. It used, implemented and created digital platforms to expand the reach of comprehensive sexuality education for youth and adolescents. In parallel, the partnership worked to strengthen maternal health care services by assuring effective service deliveries. To do so, the project enhanced the provision of maternal and newborn health services and access to family planning within communities and selected health facilities, provided supplies and training to midwives and health personnel and distributed reproductive health kits to pregnant women.
