Description and results


This project supports the organization of a high-level roundtable discussion to explore innovative technology and private sector partnerships to improve health and save the lives of women and children. This roundtable, organized by the Center for Global Health and Diplomacy (GHD), is taking place in Ottawa on November 19, 2014. Its lessons and findings will be shared with GHD’s partners in 42 countries, as well as the international donor community participating in the World Economic Forum and the World Health Assembly. This project is part of Canada’s maternal, newborn and child health commitment.
