Questions Symposium for Maternal and Newborn Health Research

Questions Symposium

Celebrating 30 years of maternal and newborn health research at LSHTM

Over the last three decades, research on maternal and newborn health has diversified – in topics, methods, actors and stakeholders, and markers of success. The global agenda has been driven by MDGs and now SDGs, and progress has been celebrated in terms of reductions in maternal and newborn mortality. But much more remains to be done to achieve health and well-being for all mothers and newborns.  Thirty years is also the period over which the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine has conducted research on MNH. We are holding a one-day symposium to examine questions on the rationale, methods and impact of our past and present research, and the challenges to be faced in the future.   


Information on how to register to attend the Questions Symposium will be available on this site shortly. There will also be live-streaming and a recording of the event for those unable to participate in person. Watch this space for more details
