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.
