The deadline for the MHTF-PLOS Collection, “Neglected Populations: Decreasing Inequalities & Improving Measurement in Maternal Health,” has been extended to 1 May 2016!
To highlight the many dimension of maternal health inequality, the Maternal Health Task Force (MHTF) has partnered with Public Library of Science (PLOS) for a new collection, “Neglected Populations: Decreasing inequalities and improving measurement in maternal health.” The collection will focus on the use of new and innovative tools to measure, track, and reduce disparities. The collection aims to disseminate new evidence on this critical topic, with specific focus on the work of maternal health researchers in low-resource settings.
Study Populations, Researchers, and Topics of Interest
In order to produce a well-rounded collection, we are particularly interested in submissions that include study populations in sub-Saharan Africa, migrants, women in conflict areas, racial minorities, adolescents, or stigmatized groups. Early career researchers and/or researchers from low- and middle-income countries are encouraged to submit their work. The collection seeks research that utilizes disaggregated data, measurement, or other specific tools to quantify disparities or identify inequity in maternal healthcare.
For research requirements and submission details, please see the original call for papers.
