Colloquium on Maternal and Neonatal Health beyond 2015



The Institute of Tropical Medicine in Antwerp and the Moroccan École Nationale de Santé Publique will organise a colloquium on Maternal & Neonatal Health Beyond 2015 from 24 until 27 November 2015 in Rabat, Morocco. The Colloquium will make recommendations on how maternal health can be improved in an integrated post-2015 development framework. It will explore how we can work towards a vision of a healthy life for all, beyond reductions in mortality, in line with the UN Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health.


The conference will focus on three areas:

  • respectful childbirth;
  • maternal morbidity and its consequences on newborn’s and women’s health;
  • maternal mortality surveillance.
