Join the World Health Organization (WHO) Director General, the Chief Nurse (a midwife!), and the Midwifery Advisor to hear the headlines of the State of the Worlds Midwifery Report – hot off the press! Find out what the future holds for midwifery education, services, workforce, and leadership from WHO midwives around the world.

Just a few more days until the start of the Virtual International Day of the Midwife conference. We can’t wait to meet you!

Each year VIDM receives a number of outstanding posters which illustrate many aspects of midwifery practice and research around the globe. This year is no different.  While you are waiting take some time to explore the 19 posters.  Additionally, many of the poster presenters chose to be interviewed. Links to the podcast interviews are found below their names on the presentation page with more added as we go.

Please take some time to review this excellent work. Follow the link below to the presentation page.

Are you ready for VIDM 2021?

Look to the right of this blog post ⇒  That is how much time you have to get ready for VIDM 2021.

Attending a 24 hour conference with concurrent sessions  + a pre-conference event all via online takes planning! When are you available? Which sessions are your “must attend” and which ones can you catch as recordings? Be sure to consider the Preconference event with WHO.  Review the VIDM 2021 Programme Calendar and save the sessions to your calendar. Make note of the session room (1 – 2 – 3 – 4). Remember to check the link in each session listing for the time in your location — all conference sessions are scheduled using UTC.

How about the conference technology? Attend a drop in session to check out how BigBlueButton works (BBB is NOT set up like ZOOM).  See below to find a session that works for you or look here. The moderators are available to answer any questions. Make note of the room for each drop-in session. Sessions marked with * will be available in Spanish or English as requested by the attendees. Headsets are strongly recommended!

Login instructions for BigBlueButton are here: Accessing the Conference 2021.

We can’t wait to meet you!
