This year, more than 300,000 women will die from preventable conditions during pregnancy.

Access to timely and appropriate surgical care could avert more than one-third of these deaths. Yet, safe surgery is rarely identified as a key strategy for ending preventable maternal mortality.

Partner with champions from Jhpiego, GE Foundation, the G4 Alliance and Safe Surgery 2020 for an inspiring dialogue about the critical role of safe surgery innovations to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, including those related to maternal and newborn health. Join us for the latest in innovative service-delivery approaches, target-driven policy, and sustainable surgical care models. Lead the charge to embrace global surgery as an essential, cross-cutting healthcare intervention.

Together we can reach the Sustainable Development Goals. Together we can save women’s lives.

Breakfast will be provided.
