Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In collaboration with member national professional associations, the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) has been conducting a Saving Mothers and Newborns Project in 10 low- and middle-resource countries. The project aims to achieve the objectives set out in Millennium Development Goals 4 and 5 related to child survival and maternal mortality and to develop organizational capacity among member associations. Projects are developed in response to the needs of the local country, through a twinning of professional associations between high- and low-resource countries.
