The MHTF collaborated with USAID and the CDC to convene Maternal Health, HIV and AIDS: Examining Research through a Programmatic Lens, a technical meeting in Boston, Massachusetts on 10-11 June 2013. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss emerging research linking maternal health and HIV, identify research gaps, and consider programmatic implications. While there is a need for significant investment in this issue around the globe, the focus of this particular meeting was Africa.
USAID, the CDC, and the MHTF hope that this technical meeting will lay the groundwork for ongoing collaboration, a proposed dialogue on integrated programming in late 2013, and further discussion at global HIV/AIDS and maternal health meetings in 2014.
