The Lancet Maternal Health Series and Implications for U.S. Policy
The CSIS Global Health Policy Center hosted a session focused on the new Lancet series “Maternal Health 2016.” Ten years after The Lancet published a series on maternal survival, this new release highlights current knowledge, successes, and gaps within the new development framework of the Sustainable Development Goals.
During the session, series contributor Margaret Kruk, Associate Professor of Global Health at the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health, spoke to the content of “Maternal Health 2016.” Her remarks were followed by a discussion highlighting the policy implications for the series. The conversation featured Elizabeth Fox, Deputy Child and Maternal Survival Coordinator at USAID, and Mariam Claeson, Director of the GFF. Janet Fleischman, Senior Associate at the CSIS Global Health Policy Center moderated the event.
