Global Maternal Newborn Health Conference

Reaching every mother & newborn with quality care
October 18-21, 2015
Mexico City

The Global Maternal Newborn Health Conference 2015 will provide a global forum to understand and respond to the most urgent health needs of mothers and newborns, focusing on three key themes:

— quality care
– integration
– equity

The technical program for the conference will be abstract-driven and sessions will be grouped into six tracks:

1) Innovating to accelerate impact at scale
2) Bridging equity divides
3) Generating new evidence to fill critical knowledge gaps
4) Measuring for evaluation and accountability
5) Strengthening demand for health care
6) Increasing health systems’ capacity to respond to population need

The official call for abstracts will be issued soon. All abstracts must fit within one of the tracks. Submissions will be accepted for five different types of presentations: oral presentation, pre-formed panel, poster presentation, skills demonstration, and the marketplace of ideas.

A notice will be sent when the online abstract submission process opens. In the meantime, learn more about the process by visiting the conference frequently asked questions.
