Last Thursday, February 4, 2016, global and maternal health experts gathered in the Leadership Studio at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health to discuss the status and imperatives of maternal newborn health. The seminar, Global Maternal Newborn Health: Current Progress and Future Directions, provided an opportunity for panelists to discuss their current work in the field as well as their top insights from the 2015 Global Maternal Newborn Health Conference held in Mexico City last October. Dr. Ana Langer, Director of the Women and Health Initiative and Maternal Health Task Force at the Harvard Chan School, presented the Momentum for Maternal Newborn Health poster, a visual roadmap of the 10 critical actions for maternal newborn health needed in the post-2015 era.
