Improving Maternal Health Through Universal Health Coverage

Posted on

Next Thursday, February 20th, the Woodrow Wilson Center will be hosting an event on Improving Maternal Health Through Universal Health Coverage, where the speakers will present evidence from Afghanistan, Mexico, Rwanda, and Thailand, which:

demonstrates the potential of universal health coverage to improve women’s health outcomes and equity, while offering vital insights about how to strengthen the design, implementation, and measurement of universal health coverage schemes elsewhere.

Universal health coverage is expected to figure prominently in the post-2015 development framework. Though maternal mortality and other women’s health targets are falling behind the MDG goals, universal healthcare may be the solution for maternal mortality goal setting post-2015.

Speakers will include Dr. Ana Langer, Dr. Laura Laski, and Dr. Jonathan Quick.
