Welcome to the website of the Global Maternal Newborn Health Conference 2015!

Researchers, policymakers, funders, implementers, and other stakeholders gathered in Mexico City, Mexico from 18 – 21 October 2015 to share new evidence, identify opportunities and gaps, build understanding across disciplinary boundaries, and discuss the way forward to improve maternal and newborn health around the globe.
