Advocacy

Systems Advocacy:
CANA refers all cases to Maternity Coalition.

Individual Advocacy:
As a general rule, CANA does not provide individual advocacy. We aim, instead, to direct women to support organisations which provide information, education and support. CANA holds to the philosophy that women should be empowered to seek independent information and advocate for themselves so they can make informed choices. We also believe in the principal of justice. If there are substantiated complaints about a health service, CANA will aim to address these in cooperation with Maternity Coalition. See links below for some of the ways in which CANA has offered advocacy.
