The Institute of Tropical Medicine organizes its 2015 annual colloquium in partnership with the Moroccan École Nationale de Santé Publique (ENSP). The conference on maternal and neonatal health in low- and middle-income countries will take place from 24 to 27 November in Rabat, Morocco. Researchers from across the world will present new research, share experiences and discuss lessons learned from the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) which expire in 2015.

Since 1990, world-wide maternal mortality has been reduced by 47% and child mortality by 49%. However, the MDGs aimed at reducing under-five mortality by two-thirds (MDG4) and maternal mortality by three-quarters, while achieving universal access to reproductive health (MDG5), have not been reached.

The Colloquium will make recommendations on how maternal health can be improved in an integrated post-2015 development framework. It will explore how we can work towards a vision of a healthy life for all, beyond reductions in mortality, in line with the UN Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health.

The 57th Colloquium will focus on three areas:


  1. Respectful childbirth

  2. Maternal morbidity and its consequences on newborn’s and women’s health

  3. Maternal mortality surveillance
