    Innovations in Global Maternal Health

    Maternova

    REGISTER HERE

    Moderator:

    Jennifer Barragan, Medical Device Management and Innovation Consultant

    Speakers:

    Meg Wirth and Allyson Cote, Maternova, Inc.

    Date: 29 April 2014

    Time: 11:00 a.m. New York, EST (convert to your time)

    About this webinar:

    Childbirth presents a significant danger to a large portion of the world. To bring this into perspective, one woman dies every 90 seconds...in the context of trying to give life. Worldwide, each year approximately 326,000 women die 'a maternal death' and 1 million children are left motherless due to maternal death. This means that each generation we lose 10 million women to maternal death. How can technology change these horrifying statistics and which organizations are leading the way in developing and deploying these solutions?

    In our upcoming webinar, Maternova - a for-profit social enterprise dedicated to accelerating the deployment of life-saving maternal and newborn health innovations - will tackle these questions and the common misconception that minimizing childbirth risks has to be difficult and expensive.

    Join us for the E4C webinar on April 29th to:

    • Learn the core causes of maternal mortality and morbidity,
    • Discover the broad landscape of innovations for maternal health, and
    • Take an in-depth look at two key maternal health technologies.
