Position Papers:


A good position paper will be generally a one page essay and is usually divided into three parts.
In the position paper, you will address
  • Why maternal health is important to your country in particular or to the international community as a whole. Here it is great to show your chair you have done your research by incorporating data, facts, and/or statistics
  • What actions has your country taken in regard to maternal health? Is your country a signatory to CEDAW? What is your country currently doing to improve maternal health outcomes?
  • Finally, your paper should make recommendations for how to improve the global maternal health crisis. What is being done that is working? How could it be improved?
