Experts To Discuss The Future of Maternal Health in Ghana

The University of Ghana’s College of Health Sciences in collaboration with the  Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital and the University Medical Center Utrecht, Utrecht University is organizing a symposium to discuss the topic  ‘Future of maternal health research in Ghana’.

Maternal health is a central theme in Sustainable Development Goals 3, with the target to reduce maternal mortality to <70 per 100.000 live births by 2030.

Despite substantial progress in the reduction of maternal mortality during the Millennium Development Goals, Ghana’s maternal mortality rate currently is >300 per 100.000 live births.

The symposium aims to bring together practitioners, researchers and policy makers from Ghana and the international community to exchange knowledge and map future priorities in research to improve
care provided to women during pregnancy, delivery and postpartum.

There will also be a photo exhibition that features a number of maternal health researchers from Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, University of Ghana and the Ghana Health Services.

The symposium is scheduled to take place on the 16th of February, 2018 from the hours of 09:00 – 16:00 GMT at the Ghana College of Physicians and Surgeons, Accra.
