Woodrow Wilson Center’s Environmental Change and Security Program’s “New Security Beat”: Reaching the Farthest Behind: Maternal Health Innovations at the Facility Level
Yuval Cohen, an intern with the Maternal Health Initiative at the Woodrow Wilson Center, discusses an event at the Wilson Center on how maternal health clinics “can be drivers of innovation.” Cohen writes, “Technological advancements are crucial, but innovative ideas for scaling up existing solutions and for improving training of care providers are key to increasing the quality of maternal and child health care. The field is filled with opportunities, from new devices to refurbished business models. While all of these efforts require money, impact investing and other financial innovations may fill the gaps in public sector funding” (10/2).
