In the Spring of 2024, the Federation of Medical Women of Canada (FMWC) convened a Maternal RSV Task Force and developed a white paper with actionable recommendations to prevent Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) disease in infants during the 2024 – 2025 RSV season.

The recommendations in the white paper serve as a call to action for healthcare providers, the public and policymakers to protect infants from RSV-associated morbidity and mortality, reduce the strain of RSV illness on Canadian healthcare systems and society, and alleviate the psychological trauma families endure when caring for an infant with RSV.

The FMWC Maternal RSV Task Force aims to inspire action and equip healthcare providers and pregnant women and pregnant people with the knowledge required for informed, shared decision-making on how to best protect newborn infants from RSV disease for the 2024 – 2025 RSV season.
