Center and UNFPA on Maternal Health during Emergencies

On April 17, 2018 the head of the Center for Emergency Situations and Disaster Risk Reduction held a meeting with the representative of UN Population Fund in Kazakhstan Ms. Giulia Vallese. The parties discussed problematic matters related to safety of the reproductive health and maternal health during emergencies.

One of the probable solutions could be joint educational work for the specialists and population using specific examples, best practices and experience from past emergencies. Also, to ensure reproductive health and maternal health safety, the Center and UNFPA are planning to analyze the legislation with the subsequent submission of proposals to the Parliament of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
