La globalisation est une réalité, y compris dans le système de santé. Le présent article a pour but de démontrer quels sont les enjeux de la globalisation et de la mondialisation et quelles en sont les conséquences directes pour le personnel de santé suisse et les sages- femmes. Travailler dans un monde globalisé est un défi de tous les instants, certains aspects de la compétence interculturelle en sont l’illustration.
La fédération suisse des sages-femmes est en réseau avec les organisations suivantes :
European Midwives Association (EMA)
Is a non-profit and non-governmental organisation of midwives, representing midwifery organisations and associations from the member states of the European Union (EU), members of the Council of Europe, the European Economic Area (EEA) and EU applicant countries.
The International Confederation of Midwives supports midwives (ICM)
The International Confederation of Midwives (ICM) supports, represents and works to strengthen professional associations of midwives throughout the world.
World Health Organisation (WHO)

Topics for midwives:
Sexual and reproductive health and research including the Special Programme HRP
Maternal Health (choose "Health Topics" and "Maternal Health")
Newborn Health (choose "Health Topics" and "Maternal Health")
Family planning/contraception methods
WHO recommendations: intrapartum care for a positive childbirth experience
WHO recommendations on maternal and newborn care for a positive postnatal experience
Midwifery Unit Network (MUNET)
MUNET wants midwifery units to become a mainstream option for women with an uncomplicated pregnancy, providing holistic care to them and their family. For this purpose, MUNET has worked with the European Midwives Association (EMA) to develop the Midwifery Unit Standards, to provide the quality assurance necessary to scale up the implementation of midwifery units across Europe.
The Midwifery Unit Standards are designed for providers of midwifery unit care to self-assess their provision against key quality criteria and to plan service improvements.
The Standards can be used by anyone who is setting up, running, or working in a midwifery unit. They are also relevant for those who are responsible for the organisation of national, regional and local health services and allocating resources; and also for those providing support to a midwifery unit, such as ambulance services and obstetric unit clinicians and service managers.
