Maternal Health Task force
The MHTF is a facilitator of partnerships to reduce maternal mortality and morbidity around the world and is the flagship program of the Women and Health Initiative at the Harvard School of Public Health.

By Kathleen McDonald, Stacy Griswold, and Katie Millar As momentum builds towards the unveiling of the post-2015 agenda, the global health community has its eye on universal health coverage (UHC) as a priority for operationalizing the sustainable development goals (SDGs). Tomorrow, December 12, 2014, the global health community will launch the first ever Universal Health Coverage Day to advocate for health care to be accessible to all who seek it. The issue at hand is not whether UHC is achievable, but is ensuring that UHC researchers, implementers, and policy-makers collaborate to provide rich evidence to improve and ensure quality health care for all. In order to facilitate this collaboration, the Maternal Health Task Force (MHTF) and USAID|TRAction brought to light the role of women in UHC at the Third Global Symposium on Health Systems Research in Cape Town, South Africa on September 30, 2014.
