6. Challenges for Reproductive, Maternal, Child, Newborn and Adolescent Health in the COVID-19 pandemic
The group will look at challenges for reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health as well as women’s health.
The pandemic has resulted in limited access to maternal and child health services due to restrictions in movement and other control measures in many countries.
Furthermore, lockdowns have led to a rise in intimate partner and domestic violence.
The group is currently working on a study to examine the effect of the COVID-19 restriction on the provision of reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH) services in selected countries.
