Maternal and Child Health Center India
Who We Are
The Johns Hopkins Maternal and Child Health Center in India works to strengthen public health education, accelerate research in maternal and child health, and support implementation of public health interventions that will reduce disparities and improve the lives of mothers and children in India, and bring us closer towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The center focuses on women’s health, saving newborn lives, ensuring quality care, addressing vaccine-preventable diseases, meeting the needs of children who live in urban and rural areas who are marginalized and hard to reach, and strengthening public health capacity in India.
The disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic to primary health services and immunization programs have deeply affected the most vulnerable groups, especially women, adolescent girls, and children. In response, Dr. Anita Shet, the Director of the Johns Hopkins Maternal and Child Health Center India, shared a powerful message about the potential for innovative partnerships and public health to improve the health of women and children in India.
