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).

Call for Papers: Non-Communicable Diseases and Maternal Health Around the Globe

This collection aims to draw attention to issues surrounding non-communicable diseases, with a particular focus on risk factors and implications for reproductive or maternal health. 

 


Neglected Populations: Decreasing Inequalities and Improving Measurement in Maternal Health

Through this latest collection, we draw attention to issues of inequality within maternal health, with a particular focus on new and innovative measurement tools and approaches to track disparities and guide efforts to reduce them.
