Hundreds of thousands of women die of pregnancy- and childbirth-related complications every year and research suggests, in developing countries, there is a link between maternal health and lack of access to quality water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH).  Improving maternal health requires a greater understanding of WASH as it relates to maternal mortality and morbidity; monitoring to ensure effectiveness; and systematic evaluations of completed WASH projects. Further research and collaboration by the WASH and maternal health communities could garner more awareness and advocacy. Join us as we host a panel on ways to advance maternal health using WASH strategies.
