White Ribbon Alliance

National Alliances

Currently, the White Ribbon Alliance has 13 fully affiliated National Alliances addressing the specific issues of safe motherhood in their respective countries. Alliances are also forming in a number of other countries, including Australia and Canada.

Purpose of National Alliances

National Alliances are autonomous networks that include individuals, local and international organizations (NGOs), professional associations, government entities, youth representatives, community members, academic and health training institutions and donor agencies.

The work of a National Alliance is carried out by its membership, which is voluntary by nature.

Each National Alliance determines – based on the specific local/national/regional safe motherhood issues – its own unique priority areas of focus, structure and decision making processes that are inclusive, participatory, transparent and consistent with the White Ribbon Alliance mission, vision, and values.
