This org is one of the big gals in the struggle to promote women’s global health.
Calling maternal health “one of the most neglected areas in Global Health,” the MHTF is on a mission to correct this neglect.
From my read of their website and articles, the organization brings together organizations already working in this area, fosters cooperation between them, provides a forum for discussion, encourages the sharing of information, and includes those on the ground in the discussion.
Further (from here):
Priority is given to activities that contribute to the building of a stronger evidence base for maternal health, greater consensus in the field, new thinking and approaches that will move the field forward, and improvements in coordination and collaboration.”
They have great maternal health tools on their website: interactive maps, presentations, stats, articles.
From the website you will find a forum to collaborate with others in the field.
One of the MHTF’s “Communities of Practice” has Clean Birth Kits as it’s specific focus. Read this post for more on that group and its work.
In short an amazing resource for those interested in global maternal health.
