May 22nd is World Pre-eclampsia Day
To raise awareness of preeclampsia as a life-threatening complication of pregnancy, maternal health organizations around the world are joining forces to host the third annual World Preeclampsia Day on Wednesday, May 22.
Supporting APEC makes a real difference.
Action on Pre-eclampsia aims to raise public and professional awareness of pre-eclampsia, improve care, and ease or prevent physical and emotional suffering caused by the disease. We receive no statutory funding and are mainly supported by the kind donations and subscriptions from the public – people like you.
