The Maternal Health Task Force Terms of Reference

I am pleased to post the final MHTF Terms of Reference (PDF, 68kb) which will be used to guide our work over the next three years. This document outlines the ways in which the MHTF will operate to achieve its goal and objectives, and describes the niche that the MHTF aims to fill in the expanding global response to improving the health of mothers everywhere.

This document is the result of extensive research and consultation with an array of maternal health experts around the world, and it was the subject of a launch meeting that took place in Washington, D.C. in late February 2009. (Download the report — PDF, 60kb — of that meeting.)

Many thanks to all who contributed valuable time and energy to the drafting and reviewing of these Terms of Reference. We look forward to applying these guidelines to an exciting work-plan, which is now under development. We will post more on that in the coming weeks.
