Products|Maternal and child health conditions

Over the last three decades, the number of maternal and child deaths have decreased substantially worldwide. Despite the significant progress made in improving maternal and child health, there remain gaps in providing antenatal care in pregnancy, skilled care during childbirth, and care and support in the weeks after childbirth. While the first 48 hours after birth are the most important for child survival, there are other challenges families may face as their children age. These may include accessing preventative health services (e.g., immunization) or specialized treatments (e.g., for childhood cancer). Read our products below for evidence and insights about how the health system building blocks are used to provide care for maternal and child health conditions.
