IHME participates in Latin American regional consultation on maternal health
Professor Rafael Lozano, who leads IHME’s maternal mortality research, joins the panel “The Key Challenges of Maternal Mortality in Latin America and the Caribbean” as part of a Latin American and Caribbean regional consultation, “The Unfinished Agenda.” Dr. Lozano will discuss what current maternal mortality numbers tell us about the state of women’s reproductive health.
The discussions at this regional consultation will help shape the agenda for the next Women Deliver global conference in 2013, which will focus on Millennium Development Goal 5 to improve maternal health. Grupo de Trabajo Regional para la Reducción de la Mortalidad Materna (Regional Working Group for the Reduction of Maternal Mortality) is a coordinating partner of the consultation.
