This is the first in a series of Joint UCL-LSHTM joint symposiums.
With 1000 days remaining to the MDG targets, there is an increased focus on reducing maternal and newborn deaths through equitable coverage of life-saving interventions. Community-based strategies to improve maternal and newborn health are receiving policy attention, but there are a number of ways of thinking about them. They may be perceived as individual interventions, as a platform for many activities, or even as a distraction from health system building. An increasing number of studies and trials have been published, examining a range of approaches, yet sometimes the evidence is grouped as if all community-based maternal newborn care strategies were the same. What does the latest evidence show and what is actually being scaled up?
