What is Maternal and Child Health Research?
Maternal and child health research is dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of pregnant women, mothers, and children through scientific study and evaluation of promising programs. Our research agenda is grounded in the belief that a mother’s health and wellbeing has a profound impact on her child.
Maternity Care Coalition’s research program contributes to the evidence base* in maternal and child health through:
- Rigorous evaluation of our program outcomes.
- Research studies on the most pressing needs of pregnant women and new moms.
- Collaborations with university researchers.
*Evidence-based interventions have documented proof of their effectiveness after rigorous testing.
