What next? Putting The Lancet Maternal Health Series into action

In September 2016 The Lancet released a new Maternal Health Series that focuses on maternal wellbeing and survival as keys to achieving the sustainable development goals (SDGs). Now that the series has been launched, what does it mean for implementing partners? What implications does the series have for quality of maternal health care, access to services, integration of services, and advocacy?

We invite you to join the Maternal Health Initiative, United Nations Population Fund, and Maternal Health Task Force on October 28 as we explore these questions.
