Tbilisi. UNICEF is partnering with the National Center for Disease Control and Public Health to reach out to approximately 26,000 registered pregnant women in Georgia and offer them virtual consultations with gynecologists.
“Since June 2020, leading doctors have organized online consultations for more than 5000 pregnant women. UNICEF is calling on pregnant women to register and use this opportunity once they are contacted by phone and are invited to the sessions. The virtual sessions are organized to mitigate the risks associated with COVID-19. During the online consultations each woman receives individual attention from the doctor. The sessions gather up to 25 pregnant women together via the virtual platform and allow them to learn about the issues connected with pregnancy from both the clinician and their peers”.
