Strengthening Maternal and Newborn Care in Bangladesh: A presentation on the USAID-funded MaMoni—Maternal Newborn Care Strengthening Project


In partnership with the University of California, Berkeley’s Center for Subir and Malini Chowdhury for Bangladesh Studies and USAID’s MaMoni Maternal and Newborn Care Strengthening Project (MaMoni MNCSP), implemented by Save the Children, a virtual discussion (webinar) will take place on February 24, 2022 to share insights on the maternal and newborn health sector in Bangladesh.

The Subir and Malini Chowdhury Center for Bangladesh Studies, the first of its kind in the US, was established in December 2013 and is housed under the Institute for South Asia Studies at the University of California (UC) at Berkeley. The center’s mission is to create an innovative model combining research, scholarships, the promotion of art and culture, and the building of ties between institutions in Bangladesh and the UC.

The MaMoni MNCSP project contributes significantly to the achievement of sustainable development by assisting the Bangladesh government’s health, population, and nutrition sector program in reducing maternal and neonatal mortality rates. This webinar will be of great value to public health experts and policymakers, particularly in the areas of maternal and newborn health and nutrition.The panel discussion will include a broader range of participants from the MaMoni’s stakeholders, such as the Bangladesh government, public health experts, and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
