Event Details

Overview:

Mothers and their babies face greater risks to their survival during humanitarian crises. However, there is a dearth of evidence about how best to apply reproductive health interventions effectively in crises settings. Understanding why women and their babies die in these specific circumstances is pivotal to designing appropriate interventions to prevent deaths from similar causes.

This seminar will explore tools and approaches to maternal death surveillance and response (MDSR) in crises settings with presentations on the following:

  • Value of MDSR data and systems in crises settings, and in contributing to achieving  sexual and reproductive health rights
  • Approaches to measuring maternal mortality in refugee settings and responding to findings
  • Participatory ethnographic evaluation research (PEER) as a tool to triangulate MDSR findings in crises settings

 Speakers:

  • Rajat Khosla, Human Rights Adviser – Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, World Health Organization, Geneva
  • Nadine Cornier, Humanitarian Adviser – Reproductive Health & Head of Office, UNFPA, Turkey
  • Eleanor Brown, Technical Specialist Options, London

Moderator: Sarah Moxon, Research Fellow, the March Centre for Maternal, Adolescent, Reproductive and Child Health, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

This event is a collaboration between the Health in Humanitarian Crises Centre, the Global MDSR Action Network and the MARCH Centre for Maternal, Adolescent, Reproductive and Child Health
