Global progress toward improved health for women and children remains challenging, especially in areas with the highest burdens of mortality and morbidity. Through its many components, including the OGHRIA, the Global Network, and others, the NICHD aims to close knowledge gaps related to the best methods for identifying and impacting unmet needs, and to increasing the effective implementation of evidence-based practice, especially in areas where there is a significant presence of NIH-funded research and/or U.S. government and non-government programs.
At this meeting, the NICHD will convene experts in the field of implementation science research to explore the potential development of implementation models and frameworks applicable to maternal and child health programs, services, and research in resource-poor settings. Specific objectives of the meeting are to: identify implementation research models that are applicable to resource-limited areas; highlight high-impact interventions that are available for scale-up; and establish guidelines for a technical working group to use for a implementation research initiative targeting specific United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals.
Attendance at this meeting is by invitation only.
