Maternal Health Task Force

The Maternal Health Task Force (MHTF) contributes to shaping collective efforts to improve maternal health worldwide, serving as a catalyst to address one of the most neglected areas in global health.

The MHTF was launched by EngenderHealth in 2008 with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. Since then, the MHTF has become an important forum dedicated specifically to maternal health, while reaching out to leaders from allied fields—including neonatal and child health, family planning, nutrition and transportation — to devise innovative solutions to eradicating preventable maternal morbidity and mortality. Partners in developing countries play a central role in setting the MHTF’s agenda.

Recognizing that real progress requires better coordination and increased global attention, the MHTF brings together new and existing maternal health networks to facilitate global coordination of maternal health programs. The MHTF does not duplicate or replace existing projects, but plays a complementary role by convening stakeholders and creating an inclusive setting to engage in dialogue, build consensus, and share information.

The MHTF at EngenderHealth continued through April 2012 under joint management with the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH), where it now resides within the HSPH Women and Health Initiative.
