One of the few forums dedicated to maternal health, the Woodrow Wilson Center’s 2009-2011 Advancing Dialogue on Maternal Health series brought together senior-level policymakers, academic researchers, members of the media, and NGO workers from the U.S. and abroad. This year, in Kenya, the Wilson Center and African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC) convened two workshops on neglected maternal health issues with field workers and members of the Kenyan parliament.

To meet the challenges in maternal health, the series’ speakers recommended using existing, low-cost solutions that build on our current knowledge base. The event will launch “Delivering Solutions: Advancing Dialogue To Improve Maternal Health”, which captures, analyzes, and synthesizes the strategies and recommendations that emerged from the series.
