View The Conference Site

In 2023 in Cape Town, South Africa, more than 1,000 stakeholders from around the world will come together to accelerate solutions to improve maternal and newborn survival and prevent stillbirths in a coordinated and inclusive manner.

Conference purpose

As we look toward 2030, urgent, collective action is needed to meet the SDG-era targets for maternal and newborn health (MNH) and prevention of stillbirths. While many countries have taken meaningful steps, progress has plateaued amid competing health priorities, especially as countries transition through phases of the COVID-19 pandemic.
