Join this webinar for the launch of a new Lancet four-part Series on Maternal health in the Perinatal Period and Beyond. Experts will present findings related to: how maternal health is intricately linked to human adaptations to the planet; how cultural, political, and economic structures influence the social determinants that shape women’s vulnerabilities during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period and beyond; the long-term consequences of labour and childbirth that are left out of global maternal health agenda; intersectional approach to address global maternal health inequities; and how to apply this new knowledge to address the reported stagnation in global maternal mortality ratio, and achieve other relevant SDG targets.
By the end of the Webinar participants will:
- Understand the role of human interactions with the environment and the social, political, cultural, and economic adaptations of societies as important forces that shape women’s vulnerabilities throughout pregnancy, childbirth, and beyond
- Describe the consequences of labour and childbirth that are typically neglected in global maternal and women’s health agenda, and identify current knowledge and normative gaps
- Describe and understand new thinking and approaches to address inequities in maternal health
- Learn about key global recommendations and actions from the Series.
