We believe it is important that a wide range of research and academia stakeholders unite behind the ambitious but achievable goal of accelerating the reduction of maternal and neonatal mortality. Building on a previous academic collaboration, three institutions with recognised expertise and dedication to improving maternal and neonatal health, Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal), the Maternal Health Task Force at the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and the Aga Khan University (AKU), and the, have joined forces around an academic alliance that since 2015 has conducted three editions of the Safe Mothers and Newborns Leadership Workshop. Additionally, for the first francophone edition of the workshop in Africa, the consortium is partnering with the École Nationale de Santé Publique (ENSP) de Maroc.
The workshop has been designed for mid-career professionals and decision-makers from low and middle income countries with high burden of maternal and newborn mortality, with proven experience in RMNCH, and current responsibilities in the health sector (i.e. program managers, policy makers in relevant fields, program officers of NGOs or UN agencies, among others) that have the potential to promote/lead changes in the countries where they work. It is expected that at least 75% of participants should fall under this profile.
Members of international academic, non-governmental or research institutions with a track record in maternal and neonatal health may also be considered.
The Workshop is co-directed by:
- Prof. Clara Menéndez, Director of the Maternal, Child, and Reproductive Health Initiative at the Barcelona Institute for Global Health
- Prof. Ana Langer, Director of the Women and Health Initiative at the Harvard School of Public Health
- Prof. Zulfiqar Bhutta, Noordin Noormahomed Sheriif Endowed, Professor and Founding Chair of the Centre for Excellence in Women's and Children's Health at the Aga Khan University in Karachi, Pakistan.
Enrolment is through a restricted nomination process. Nominees will fill out an online application (indicating the name of the nominator and providing a motivation letter and their CV), which will be reviewed and either approved or declined by a selection committee.
The selection committee will be composed of members of the academic alliance and faculty. Other selection criteria will include country of origin, gender, and sector where they develop their activity, in order to warrant as much diversity as possible.
Pre-enrolment for the 2018 edition is now CLOSED.
