KIT Dossier Maternal health

Last update: Wednesday 24 October 2012

This dossier serves as a background to the Maternal Health portal. The portal shares examples of practical projects and initiatives that have been undertaken with the explicit objective of contributing to the attainment of Millennium Development Goal 5. Another aim of the dossier is to file (scientific) documents that are relevant to all maternal health specialists, ranging from midwives to policy makers.

The portal and dossier are an initiative of the ‘MDG5 Meshwork for Improving Maternal Health’, a cross-sector, cross-disciplinary network of organizations based in Sierra Leone, Afghanistan and the Netherlands. The purpose of the Meshwork is to develop innovative and effective partnerships that contribute to the achievement of Millennium Development Goal 5, to improve maternal health. The portal has been developed and managed by the Information and Library Services department of the Royal Tropical Institute (KIT). The target audience is formed by the partners of the Meshwork and the global community of public health professionals and policy makers who are involved in designing projects and programmes addressing maternal health.
