The Woodrow Wilson Center’s Global Health Initiative, the Maternal Health Task Force (MHTF) at EngenderHealth, and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) have announced the third event, Maternal and Newborn Health as a Priority for Strengthening Health Systems, in their series, Advancing Policy Dialogue on Maternal Health.

The event will be held on March 8th, 2010 from 3-5pm at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, DC.

About the Event
Increasing investments for strengthening health systems requires improved donor coordination and additional research to help guide decisions about where investments will have the greatest return. The inclusion of key maternal health indicators such as access to emergency obstetric care is an important strategy to improving health systems and encourages the implementation of priority evidence-based interventions.

Presenters
Julio Frenk, Dean of the Harvard University School of Public Health; Helen de Pinho, Assistant Professor of Clinical Population and Family Health at Columbia University; and Agnes Soucat, Senior Health Economist & Lead Advisor for Health, Nutrition and Population with the World Bank, will be presenting.
