Join Webinar 28 April | Diabetes in Pregnancy: An Epidemic Holding Back Progress

Posted on

While maternal mortality is declining in many parts of the world, underlying conditions affecting maternal health—such as diabetes in pregnancy—are often under-prioritized. Please tune in on 28 April for the first webinar in a three-part series, Diabetes in Pregnancy: An Epidemic Holding Back Progress, hosted by Women Deliver.

The series will present the emerging evidence base, highlight promising programs and equip the maternal and newborn health communities with tools to spark greater action for addressing diabetes in pregnancy.

In Part 1: Examining the Evidence, learn about the prevention, screening, treatment and management of diabetes in pregnancy to improve the health of women and newborns.
