The work of the MHTF
In June of 2012, the Maternal Health Task Force hosted a technical meeting â€œMalaria in Pregnancy: A Solvable Problemâ€”Bringing the Maternal Health and Malaria Communities Togetherâ€ in Istanbul, Turkey. The meeting was organized in collaboration with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and PATH. Over the course of the meeting, several challenges and opportunities to improve malaria in pregnancy were identified and have since been explored in greater detail by our partners.
Following this initial technical meeting, the MHTF formed a panel on â€œMalaria in Pregnancy: An urgent yet solvable problem uniting the maternal health and malaria communities in Africa.â€ At the American Public Health Associationâ€™s October 2012 conference, where it highlighted the findings of the Istanbul meeting and shared findings from Nigeria and Mozambique.
At the MHTFâ€™s Global Maternal Health Conference in Arusha, Tanzania in January 2013, various aspects of malaria in pregnancy were discussed over three panels, 17 presentations, and at a luncheon for colleagues working on this issue.
The MHTF also participates in Roll Back Malariaâ€™s MiP working group, maintains a regularly updated topic page on malaria in pregnancy, and coordinates a blog series with posts from experts working to address malaria in pregnancy throughout malaria-endemic regions around the world.
