Our thematic guide leads you beyond the limits of the Medicus Mundi International Network, highlighting some key entry points without intending to be comprehensive. For Network resources, please refer to our thematic pages on maternal and child health. Any important resources missing? Please let us know.

Starting point

  • New emphasis on maternal, newborn and child health
    "Focussing on maternal, newborn and child health makes sense from technical, political and human rights perspectives. However, without clarity on future directions, focus and energy could dissipate." Giovanni Putoto, Doctors with Africa Cuamm, in: MMI Network News, January 2011
    www.medicusmundi.org

For further resources of the Medicus Mundi International Network, please refer to our thematic pages on child health and safe pregnancy / maternal health.
