COVID-19 research priorities in maternal, reproductive, and child health

More than a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, there remain a number of significant unanswered questions about the effects of COVID-19 in pregnant and breastfeeding women and children. Most of the data available have emerged from studies led by researchers from high-income nations, producing data that may not be relevant or generalizable to populations within resource-limited settings.

The coalition’s Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health Working Group conducted a research priority-setting exercise between October 2020 and January 2021 to identify global research priorities in maternal, reproductive and child health.

Webinar objectives:

  • To disseminate the results of the research priority setting exercise conducted by the Maternal, Newborn and Child Health Working Group (MNCH WG) of the COVID-19 Clinical Research Coalition
  • To provide an update of research efforts and emerging data aligned with the identified research priority themes
  • To identify and highlight persisting knowledge gaps within the research priority areas and present ideas and opportunities to close these gaps
