High-risk pregnancy and NCDs in India- policy and research recommendations
On the 29th of March and 1st April 2019, the George Institute for Global Health and the University of Oxford, UK, hosted two national-level stakeholder workshops in New Delhi and Vijayawada on integrating high-risk pregnancy and NCD programs in India.
The purpose of these workshops was to discuss current priorities, initiatives and challenges in delivering care for women with high-risk pregnancies before and after birth, and to specifically discuss the role for digital and community-level interventions in the Indian context.
The workshops took the format of short introductory presentations to set the scene, followed by three-panel discussions around three key issues:
- High-risk pregnancy conditions and NCDs
- Challenges and priorities in mHealth in maternal health and NCDs in India
- The role of community health workers in bridging NCD and MCH programs
