Results from the Hungary version 1 survey: Hungary Data Trends

Hungarian event March 2017

27-28th March, one of the dreams of EMMA Hub came true with the help of the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung Buro Budapest, when the representatives of NGOs fighting for birth rights as well as a women-centered maternity care in the Visegrad countries met in Budapest to share their experiences and to identify strategic areas where they could jointly act.

On Monday, we had a session of presentations on the situation of maternity care in the Visegrad-region followed by an open public forum with progressive Hungarian health professionals. We also discussed the Hungarian results of the Babies Born Better Survey. On Tuesday, we held a workshop for NGOs and activists.
