IDEU Maternal and Neonatal Group
The Maternal and Neonatal Group carries out research to contribute to, and inform, international debate on key policy issues related to the health of young children and their mothers.
Half a million maternal deaths and 30-60 million serious maternal morbidities occur each year. Also, over four million newborns die annually and three million babies are stillborn. Nevertheless, maternal and neonatal health interventions that dramatically reduce death and disease have not been taken up.
Our goal is to undertake essential research to address maternal and neonatal
health problems, especially in poor countries. Our research is designed to generate
new knowledge in the following areas:
Location: UK, Benin, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Malawi, Senegal, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Brazil, Egypt, Lebanon, Turkey
