Maternal Health Advocates, Researchers Look To Better Match Funding To Programs To Reduce Morbidity, Mortality

Financial Times: Progress on maternal mortality hindered by ‘funding mismatch’
“When thousands of delegates travel to the latest Women Deliver conference in Copenhagen this month, they will see both a list of ‘best win’ ideas aimed at improving maternal health, and a ‘social enterprise challenge’ that showcases the projects intended to deliver them. These initiatives are examples of a growing focus, on the part of researchers, practitioners, and funders, to better match resources with evidence for policies that work to reduce unnecessary illness and death in mothers — and with the projects that can best implement them…” (Jack, 5/10).
