Webinar: Catholic Women in Global Health: Mothers and Children
February 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Many of the most at-risk mothers and children in the developing world live in rural settings with limited access to even basic health care. CMMB (Catholic Medical Mission Board) works with community health workers, village health committees, local clinics, and hospitals to ensure that care is delivered to families living where the road ends. Engaging community members in this process has proved especially critical during the pandemic when seeking health care might itself be a source of risk. Finding ways to reduce the risk of Coronavirus spreading while still promoting the most basic health services that each year prevent the deaths of thousands of women and children around the world has created an unprecedented challenge. Community-based approaches are valuable and the strengthening of clinics and hospitals is still a necessary component of life-saving solutions.
