Our committment was particularly focused on the needs of immigrant women. Cittadinanzattiva, with the support of the Ministry of Labour and Social Policies, has developed in Italy a project on improving access to pregnancy and maternity services by immigrant women. The project was inspired by the need to ensure that all women and their children have the same access to services during pregnancy and childbirth, regardless of ethnicity and social status and with equal dignity and safety. Furthermore, the project contributed to build a set of pathways towards improvement in the field of maternity protection through a civic and participatory approach.
The first step was a civic survey in health care facilities and hospitals, interaction with the stakeholders, joint definition of a Charter of Birth and Maternity Services and improvement programs of access to maternal and child services.
