The Lancet's Maternal Health Series

15 September 2016

In September, the Lancet launched a special series focusing on Maternal Health.  This is the third time the journal has published a series in this area, the first being in 2006, followed by 2013 (focused on maternal and child nutrition).  The papers included in the current special series highlight the successes and challenges to date of addressing maternal mortality and morbidity worldwide, and reassess progress within the context of the UN Sustainable Development Agenda to 2030.

The entire series is available open access from the Lancet website here.
