What We Do
To improve maternal and child survival, the Global Network research focuses on high-need
areas, such as preventing life-threatening obstetric complications, modifying childbirth
practices, improving infant birth weight and nutrition, and reducing prematurity
and complications from preterm delivery in rural and peri-urban communities. Scientists
from developing countries, together with peers in the United States, lead teams
that address priority research needs through randomized clinical trials and implementation
research conducted in low-resource areas.
