Over the past two years, the Woodrow Wilson Center has convened a number of public and private focusing on neglected issues in maternal health and strategies to move the maternal health agenda forward.
A synthesis report is now available from the Wilson Center that offers a summary and analysis of the meetings:
The 2009–2010 Advancing Dialogue on Maternal Health series worked to address many critical and neglected maternal health topics. During this period, the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars’ Global Health Initiative (GHI) co-convened 10 public meetings and 2 private workshops with the Maternal Health Task Force (MHTF) and United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) to identify challenges and discuss strategies for advancing the maternal health agenda.
This brief captures, analyzes, and synthesizes the strategies and recommendations emerging from the dialogue series that took place with the global maternal health community in Washington, DC, USA, and also with the in-country partner APHRC headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya. The findings and recommendations are organized around
three major themes for improving maternal health.
