No Progress Without Quality: Country-Led Strategies to Improve Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health, and Family Planning Outcomes

February 1, 2022

RSVP

High-quality health systems could prevent one million newborn deaths and half of all maternal deaths. In low-resource settings, poor quality of care is a bigger obstacle to improving health outcomes than lack of access to care. Yet, amid an ongoing pandemic, it is more difficult than ever for stretched health systems to provide safe, quality health care. To meet the needs of all women and children, country and global stakeholders must rally to improve quality of care at scale across maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health, and family planning services.

Please join the Wilson Center’s Maternal Health Initiative, in collaboration with USAID’s MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership, for a panel discussion on country-led approaches to improve quality of care at scale during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This event is the second in our three-part series, “Elevating Country Voices in the Global Dialogue on Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health, and Family Planning,” and will highlight country learning across key thematic areas of quality of care: measurement, leadership and governance, quality improvement action and capacity building, measurement, and accountability.

Please send questions for our panelists to mhi@wilsoncenter.org and follow the conversation on Twitter at @Wilson_MHI @USAID_MOMENTUM, and on Instagram at @MaternalHealthInitiative using the hashtag #MHDialogue. Find more coverage of these issues on our blog, NewSecurityBeat.org/Dot-Mom.
