Maternal, reproductive and child health problems are major contributors to ill-health worldwide, and account for over 13 million deaths every year, many of which are preventable. MARCH brings together over 100 researchers, students and practitioners to address these problems. We conduct studies in low, middle and high income countries. Our world-renowned researchers have strengths in epidemiology, intervention studies and health economics and policy.  Currently we have over 80 multi-disciplinary research studies which cover themes including: family planning, infertility, growth and development during pregnancy, maternal morbidity, newborn health, nutrition, health systems and treatment for infectious disease in pregnancy and early life. MARCH consolidates research and training by: • Building research partnerships throughout the world • Supporting communication networks and providing a coordinating function among researchers • Strengthening applications for research funding in maternal, reproductive and child health • Facilitating new teaching and training initiatives
