Maternal Health Task Force Year 3: Integrating Health Care to Meet the Needs of the Mother-Infant Pair

Partnered Collections, Special Issues

The theme of the Year 3 Collection was chosen with the aim of strengthening the evidence for approaches to providing integrated care, from preconception; through pregnancy, childbirth and the post-natal period; to the child's early days and years of life. It aims to build understanding of how and when to integrate maternal and infant health care, especially in relation to conditions like HIV, malaria, exposure to environmental risks and other situations that significantly impact the health of both mother and infant. Articles in the collection intend to form a clearer understanding of the importance for the integration of care.
