Division of Global Health
The ACNM Division of Global Health (DGH) works to expand the interest and expertise of ACNM members and to support global health engagement through exchange of information and increasing midwives’ general knowledge about midwifery around the world.
The ACNM DGH is composed of active and involved ACNM member volunteers who, as global citizens, promote understanding of the reciprocal benefits of working with diverse communities around the world. DGH members promote sharing of midwifery expertise to improve both midwifery workforce capacity and the quality of health care systems for women and their families.
In partnership with ACNM, the DGH offers venues for sharing global health and midwifery information and research to increase the number of ACNM members participating in global health. The DGH is active in the global exchange of information and provides support to international midwives to attend the ACNM Annual Meeting semi-annually. The DGH maintains effective and up-to-date communication to help engage, educate, and connect ACNM members interested in global midwifery. DGH promotes responsible, effective contributions by ACNM members to support midwifery around the world, through networking, research, education, communication, and guidance on global health competencies.
All of the Division's work is done via the four sections listed below. To join the division you must identify a section you are interested in and apply for membership.
