Committee on Infections During Pregnancy

The Committee on Infections During Pregnancy works on defining and disseminating the best practices for the prevention and treatment of infections during pregnancy to reduce morbidity and mortality among pregnant women and their babies. 

Committee members are experts with complementary specialisations, who help to bring an ample perspective on the issue. The committee aims to work collaboratively with other FIGO Committees and external organisations aiming to improve health care and quality of life for pregnant women.
