"This digital magazine tells the story of 2020 from within the confines of a global pandemic. It is an ode to midwives everywhere, and UNFPA and ICM wish to extend our deepest appreciation to each and every one of you for your resilience, courage and determination. We are honoured to stand shoulder to shoulder with you as we do our part in spearheading efforts toward increased investments in the midwifery workforce. 2021 marks the beginning of the Decade of the Midwife and real, global action towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Together, we can reduce maternal and neonatal mortality and ensure respectful care for all."
