'Safe Motherhood Day' tomorrow

DHAKA, May 27, 2024 (BSS) - The 'Safe Motherhood Day-2024' will be observed in the country in a befitting manner tomorrow.

Like every year, the Health and Family Welfare Ministry has taken extensive programmes to observe day this year with the theme "Make baby delivery in hospitals, save mothers' and newborns' lives".

Safe motherhood means ensuring safe healthcare for all women during pregnancy, delivery and post delivery.

The Safe Motherhood Day is being observed across the country on May 28 since 1988 to promote safe maternal health, reduce maternal mortality and ensure the health of newborns.
In 1997, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina gave approval to observing the day while the day was observed on May 28 in 1998 for the first time in the country.

Later, the World Health Organization (WHO) included the initiative in sustainable development strategy in 2015.
