Maternal Newborn Health Registry
Current Research: A prospective, population-based pregnancy study in low-middle
income countries. Sites enroll pregnant women and follow 6 weeks post-delivery.
Enrolling 60,000 women/year, MNH quantifies services, and provides stillbirth, neonatal
and maternal mortality rates to inform research.
Maternal Newborn Health Registry is a prospective, population-based
study of pregnancies and their outcomes in low-middle income countries (DRC,
Guatemala, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Zambia and Kenya). All pregnant women in participating
clusters are registered and their outcomes tracked for 6 weeks post-delivery. The
primary purpose of this prospective, population-based observational study of approximately
60,000 women per year is to quantify and understand the trends in pregnancy services
and outcomes over time in defined, low-resource geographic clusters. The goal is
to provide population-based statistics on stillbirths, neonatal and maternal mortality
as the basis of health care policy. The data from the registry also provide the
mortality and morbidity outcomes for Global Network trials and help investigators
plan future studies for the Global Network.
