Maternal Newborn Health Issues

Issue pages highlight key information and resources related to critical MNH topics.  We are just getting started.  We have prioritized topics related to the AlignMNH Opening Forum, but be sure to check back frequently for additional content and issues.

Mother-Baby Dyad & the Continuum of Care
MNH Targets, Measurement, & Data
Small & Sick Newborns

When women and newborns receive high quality care during pregnancy, at the time of birth, and in the early postnatal period, women stay healthy and babies get the best start in life. Supporting integrated packages of essential, proven interventions for women and newborns – delivered at a time and place that is feasible and acceptable – saves lives.

Want to learn more about measurement for maternal and newborn health?  We have pulled together an overview of the latest information and resources about global maternal and newborn health targets, global MNH metrics Technical Advisory and Working Groups, and MNH metrics resources.

Newborns who are born too early, too small, or who become sick in the first few weeks of life, are extremely vulnerable to long-term disability or death. Learn more and find recommendations on interventions to improve preterm birth outcomes, standards for caring for small and sick newborns, as well as the latest evidence and reflections on the use of antenatal corticosteroids for accelerating fetal lung maturation for women at risk of preterm birth in different settings.

COVID-19 resulted in service interruptions, lockdowns, and economic hardship that exacerbated the existing challenges that many families face in accessing quality, timely MNH care. Learn more and find resources about essential MNH care in the COVID-19 context, including resources on emerging experience and response, targets and measurement for COVID-19, job aids, and guidance for COVID-19 across the continuum of care.
