Coming TOGETHER for the first time in eight years…

In May in Cape Town, South Africa, more than 1,500 stakeholders from around the world will come together to accelerate solutions to improve maternal and newborn survival and prevent stillbirths in a coordinated and inclusive manner.

Conference purpose

IMNHC marks a pivotal moment as we get closer to 2030, the end date of globally agreed upon goals for maternal and newborn health and prevention of stillbirths. IMNHC will convene the maternal newborn health community to drive urgent action for the health of mothers and newborns by collaborating and fostering strong connections, exchanging the most effective tools, sharing best practices and evidence, and investing in proven interventions. Now is the time to accelerate our efforts and save lives together

In order to reprioritize and advance maternal and newborn health, it is essential that we refocus and realign to protect the progress we have made. The first biennial International Maternal Newborn Health Conference (IMNHC), organized by AlignMNH and in partnership with the maternal and newborn health community, will be held in 2023 and every two years afterwards to maintain our global progress towards improving maternal and newborn health.

IMNHC 2023:
TOGETHER, we’re a community on the move.
