UNFPA interventions in response to the COVID-19

In times of crisis like that of the COVID-19 pandemic, the risk of maternal and newborn mortality is higher. Urgent interventions in this domain can make the difference between life and death for
pregnant mothers and their newborns. Pregnant and lactating mothers as well as health personnel who assist them to deliver under good conditions (so that no woman should die while giving life) such as midwives, nurses, doctors and anesthetists must be at the center of all response efforts.
