Follow Maternal Health Task Force
The Maternal Health Task Force (MHTF) — a project of the Women and Health Initiative at the Harvard T.H.Chan School of Public Health — works to create a strong, well-informed and integrated community with equitable access to high-quality technical evidence, which we believe is critical to our goal of eliminating preventable maternal mortality and morbidity worldwide.
To that end the MHTF:
- Ensures that maternal health practitioners, policy makers, researchers and advocates around the world have access to the most current and reliable evidence and information on maternal health through our open-access onlineknowledge management system
- Identifies and creates opportunities for the global maternal health community to develop consensus on critical needs, priorities and actions in order to produce evidence-based policy, programs, education and clinical guidelines
- Generates new evidence through targeted research addressing emerging or neglected areas within maternal health
- Trains and mentor the next generation of maternal health leaders
