ADVOCACY FOR MEMBER SERVICES

Reinforcing our Commitment

Advocacy Activities

One of the core services offered to members of UPMA is advocacy for their role in providing health care services in the community. We do this through partnerships with stakeholders, sharing information with key stakeholders, attending policy meeting with key stakeholders regarding the role of member midwives in the health care profession.

The UPMA Annual community celebrations - 2017

UPMA midwives celebrate the successes they have attained with the communities they serve in ensuring the best standards for Reproductive, Maternal, Neonatal, Child and
Adolescent Health. In 2017, UPMA adopted the IDM theme of “Midwives, Mothers
and Families: Partners for Life.”

During these celebrations UPMA members carry out a
community outreach in a public facility with a purpose to take midwifery services
closer to the community. This year's outreach was conducted at Hoima regional refferral hospital. Other activities involved were matching in the streets of Hoima, an Annual General Meeting at Kolping Hotel, and these were crowned with a conference at the Hotel with invited guests - Hoima nursing and midwifery training school, Kitara Secondary School, and Premier secondary school.
