A one stop shop for maternal health and reproductive health news…
Since November 2011, the Maternal Health Task Force (MHTF), an initiative based at the Harvard School of Public Health, has collaborated with PLOS to create a freely available, open access collection of outstanding research and commentary on maternal health: the MHTF–PLOS Collection on Maternal Health.
This 3-year partnership reflects a shared overarching goal: to ensure more people have greater access to more comprehensive maternal health data, programmatic experiences, and lessons learned, and to be informed about critical areas of debate and growing consensus.
The theme of the Year 1 Collection (2011-12) was “quality of maternal health care.” See the Call for Papers editorial and the 18 articles included in the Year 1 Collection here.
The theme of the current Year 2 Collection (2012-13) is “maternal health is women’s health.” A Call for Papers was issued on November 27, 2012.
