Maternal Health Task Force Project

Background

Since November 2011, the Maternal Health Task Force (MHTF), an initiative based at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, has collaborated with PLOS to create freely available, open access collections of outstanding research and commentary on maternal health.

This 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 collections are produced with support from the Maternal Health Task Force at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health (www.mhtf.org).
