The 2012 Asia Regional Meeting on Interventions for Impact in Essential Obstetric and Newborn Care was designed to assist country programs, donors, and governments in developing and implementing comprehensive and innovative programs to address public health priorities in maternal and newborn health.
Please find the meeting agenda, presentations, and nutrition symposium presentations below—as well as the newly released final report here.
This report reviews the remarkable progress that is being made by the Asia region in moving toward achieving the Millennium Development Goal 5 target of reducing maternal deaths by 75% from 1990 to 2015. It also makes clear that although all must be congratulated for the marked improvements in MCH services, efforts must still be continued and re-doubled to sustain improvements achieved thus far.
Videos of all the plenary presentations from the Dhaka meeting will also be available shortly on the MCHIP YouTube Channel.
