Maternal and Reproductive Health World Bank Praxis Discussion Series
WHO CC involvement: Michele Rumsey
The WHO CC UTS was part of a panel on 9 September 2013 for the World Bank Praxis Discussion Series. While maternal mortality remains a huge issue on the global development agenda, reproductive health problems remain the leading cause of ill health and death for women of childbearing age worldwide. This Praxis session discussed these issues in relation to Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Timor-Leste in particular.
WHO CC UTS joined Dr Samson Baba, Director General of Community and Public Health in South Sudan, and The Hon Dr Meredith Burgmann, President of Australian Council For International Development (ACFID) as part of the World Bank Praxis Discussion Series 2013.
