“Follow the Data, Invest in Midwives” is the theme of this year’s International Day of the Midwife. The data, included in the newest State of the World’s Midwifery report launching 5 May (it was last published in 2014), show that achieving universal coverage of midwife-delivered interventions by 2035 would avert 67 per cent of maternal deaths, 64 per cent of newborn deaths and 65 percent of stillbirths and would save an estimated 4.3 million lives a year.

The challenges have further exacerbated in the current COVID-19 context.
