Register Now! Merck for Mothers at World Health Assembly 2024

While many governments have responded to the maternal health crisis, progress has been slow and, in some instances, has regressed. As it stands, there is a $33 billion annual financing gap affecting reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health services. At the 77th World Health Assembly in Geneva, an event hosted by Devex, Merck for Mothers and the WHO Country Connector on Private Sector in Health, will explore how more collaborative engagement with local private sector providers can advance equitable access to quality maternal health care for mothers in low- and middle-income countries.
