Preterm Birth: Reversing the Trend Together - The Science of Global Health: What’s Next?

1/15/2015; 58 minutes

One of the greatest global health accomplishments of the last 20 years has been the progress in reducing the death rate of children under five years old. However, the death rate among newborns has not declined as quickly, due largely to the rising epidemic of preterm births. The panel discusses new tools and approaches to combat this problem in global and local settings. Speakers include Larry Rand, co-Director, PTBi, Perinatal Director, Fetal Treatment Center and Benioff Endowed Chair in Maternal Fetal Medicine, UCSF; Zulfiqar Bhutta, Founding Director, Center of Excellence in Women and Child Health, The Aga Khan University; Mariam Claeson, Director, Maternal Newborn and Child Health, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; Jennifer Howse, President, March of Dimes; and Paul Wise, Richard E. Behrman Professor of Child Health and Society and Professor of Pediatrics and Health Policy, Stanford University. Recorded on 10/02/2014. (#29018)
