White Ribbon Alliance (WRA) April 2015
The White Ribbon Alliance (WRA) was formed over a decade ago to give a voice to the women at risk of dying in childbirth. WRA rapidly grew, as thousands of individuals and organizations joined the network, speaking as one voice, identifying problems in their own communities and finding solutions collaboratively at a national level across Africa and Asia. Their mission is to inspire and convene advocates who campaign to uphold the right of all women to be safe and healthy before, during and after childbirth. They help citizens recognize their rights and catalyse a global movement for respectful maternity care for every woman, everywhere.
