The Maternal Health Task Force (MHTF) is thrilled to announce the launch of the fourth MHTF-PLOS Collection, “Neglected Populations: Decreasing Inequalities and Improving Measurement in Maternal Health.” The partnership between the MHTF and the Public Library of Science (PLOS) began in 2011 with the goal of expanding global access to high quality maternal health research, particularly in low-resource settings, and increasing the visibility of maternal health professionals working in the Global South.

To mark the launch of the fourth collection, the MHTF will be hosting a panel discussion featuring a Senior Editor of PLOS and several authors who contributed papers to the collection. The event will take place at the Leadership Studio at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health on November 21, 2016 from 12:30-1:30pm.
