The Global Network for Women’s and Children’s Health Research at Massachusetts General Hospital for Children, is one of 7 NIH-funded locations across the world that is focusing on developing evidence to address the alarming rates of morbidity and mortality in women and children and the lack of research expertise and infrastructure in the developing world. The network which began in 2001 as a unique private-public partnership between NICHD and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation conducts studies to improve health outcomes by building research partnerships to conduct research on feasible, cost-effective, sustainable interventions to address the major causes of morbidity and mortality of women and children through 36 months of age in the developing world.
This sold-out two-day course held in May of 2013 provided practical training in the critical aspects of maternal, newborn and child global health for clinicians planning to work abroad.
