International Multiple Birth Awareness Week


Building upon the awareness work of many national multiple-birth organisations in their own countries, ICOMBO recognized that the journey toward creating awareness of multiple-birth issues and challenges, needs and rights, is to collectively educate the public.

At the 2010 ICOMBO meeting in Seoul, South Korea – it was agreed that ICOMBO would be the lead organiser of International Multiple Births Awareness Week.

Further, this event would be held on the 1st week of November, bi-annually, starting in 2010.  Themes will be chosen at the ICOMBO meeting held during the International Congress on Twin Studies, held every other year, in locations around the world.
