Maternal Health Initiative
Life and health are the most basic human rights, yet disparities between and within countries continue to grow. No single solution or institution can address the variety of health concerns the world faces. By leveraging, building on, and coordinating the Wilson Center’s strong regional and cross-cutting programming, the Maternal Health Initiative (MHI) promotes dialogue and understanding among practitioners, scholars, community leaders, and policymakers.

The CODE BLUE Series
Every year, 18 million women of reproductive age die from non-communicable diseases (NCDs) which poses a growing and often overlooked challenge to global maternal health. In partnership with EMD Serono, a business of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, the Maternal Health Initiative’s CODE BLUE series aims to bring to light and explore these issues.
