Malaria in Pregnancy
The MHTF collaborated with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM), London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), and PATH to convene a technical meeting, Malaria in Pregnancy: A Solvable Problem—Bringing the Maternal Health and Malaria Communities Together, in Istanbul, Turkey from 26-28 June 2012.
The meeting focused on sharing lessons learned from sub-Saharan African countries and projects that have attempted to achieve high coverage of malaria control for pregnant women, identifying the main challenges to addressing MiP in SSA, exploring opportunities for collaboration and innovation, and determining next steps to improve the partnership between the malaria and maternal health communities. The meeting also served as a platform for colleagues to share recent and emerging findings on the determinants of coverage of MiP interventions—as well as the effectiveness of the delivery of those interventions.
