Published in September 2016, The Lancet Maternal Health Series highlighted the importance of improving equitable access to high quality maternal health care everywhere.
Today, the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine launched a free online course titled “The Lancet Maternal Health Series: Global Research & Evidence,” featuring maternal health experts and evidence across disciplines including epidemiology, health systems, economics, advocacy, programming, obstetrics and midwifery. This course is designed for those considering or undertaking postgraduate study in maternal health or a related topic such as public health, global health or medicine and covers content from high-, middle- and low-income settings.
Using videos, articles, mini-lectures and discussions, the course will explore the following questions:
- What is the state of the world’s maternal health and health care?
- What is quality maternal health care, including ‘too little, too late’ and ‘too much, too soon’?
- What is the future of maternal health?
The course will be available for three weeks at http://bit.ly/FLmaternalhealth.
