Maternal Newborn Health and the Urban Poor: A Global Scoping

View Resource

Urbanization is changing the face of poverty and marginalization, and so the nature of preventable maternal and newborn mortality and morbidity in the 21st century. This report describes the findings from a global scoping of maternal and newborn health for the urban poor that was designed to review the state of policy, programs, and research in the field. An accompanying case study of MNH for the urban poor in Bangladesh is described in a separate report. The scoping is designed to complement – not duplicate – two recent reports of Save the Children that describe the health status of mothers and newborns in urban areas of low‐ and middle‐income countries.
