Celebrating our brave midwives in Iran

On World Health Day 2020, in the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, we celebrate Iran's midwives who are supporting pregnant women and new mothers and their babies at a time of COVID-19 - often putting their own health and safety on the line while providing lifesaving services for others. UNFPA Iran works to strengthen and promote midwifery as a crucial profession in Iran, all the more vital at this time of crisis.
