  • Description:
    In June 2013, a group of international maternal health and HIV researchers came together in Boston under the auspices of the Maternal Health Task Force (MHTF) at the Harvard School of Public Health, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to share emerging evidence, identify promising practices for scale-up, and develop a priority research agenda. Drawing on discussions during the “Maternal Health, HIV and AIDS: Examining Research Through A Programmatic Lens” meeting and a comprehensive review of the peer-reviewed literature, this research and evaluation agenda synthesizes existing knowledge and frames priority research questions that must be answered to improve maternal health in the context of sub-Saharan Africa’s HIV pandemic. The agenda also seeks to provide guidance to researchers, programmers, and policymakers about how to advance research and evaluation relevant for policy, programs, and service delivery in the short- and medium-term.
