Health Care Professionals Associations (HCPA)
The Health Care Professionals Associations (HCPA) of the Partnership for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health is comprised of eight organizations committed to achieving the goals of the Global Strategy for Women and Children. The International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO), the International Confederation of Midwives (ICM), the International Council of Nurses (ICN), and the International Pediatric Association (IPA) are committed to continuing their close collaboration with the Council of International Neonatal Nurses (COINN), the International Pharmaceutical Federation, and the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists (WFSA). The HCPAs are also committed to working with policy and implementing agencies to improve quality and to extend coverage of the key 22 Countdown supported interventions in these high-burden countries by at least 20% over the next five years.
