CCIH Co-sponsors Event on FBO Response to Maternal Mortality Print {sharethis label=}
On 15-16 November 2011, CCIH co-sponsored "Engaging Faith-Based Organizations in the Response to Maternal Mortality" with The Woodrow Wilson Center's Global Health Initiative, the Maternal Health Task Force, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), and World Faiths Development Dialogue.
The first day consisted of a discussion among 25 individuals, in which visitors from Pakistan, Yemen, Bangladesh, and Nigeria shared their best practices to engage faith-based organizations in reducing maternal mortality. Breakout discussions focused on data & research, policy/advocacy/funding, faith & family planning, and interfaith efforts. The second day consisted of a public meeting in which the same four visitors shared their best practices and the community in attendance was able to respond.
