Description: This meeting will bring together maternal/newborn health leaders, experienced clinicians and program managers to support accelerated implementation and expansion of maternal and newborn health programs in countries in Asia and the Middle East. The meeting will focus on postpartum hemorrhage (PPH), pre-eclampsia/eclampsia (PE/E) and other aspects of maternal and newborn health. The first day will include an overview of global and regional progress to date in the reduction of maternal mortality and an update on new global guidelines for PPH. It will engage participants in a technical discussion on PPH prevention and treatment, including a review of issues related to quality and availability of uterotonics and maternal health supplies. The second and third days will allow time to deliberate on management of pre-eclampsia and review PE/E program implementation experience, as well as interventions for newborns. The entire afternoon of the second day will be devoted to skill building sessions and opportunities to more deeply explore some technical issues related to service delivery and training. True to the global perspective, the meeting will emphasize PPH, PE/E and newborn initiatives from the platform of Essential Obstetric and Newborn Care and discuss it with respect to the broader Maternal and Newborn Health context in general, exploring themes of innovation, scale up and measurement. Meeting Objectives:  To present and discuss global scientific and technical information on prevention, early detection and management of PPH and PE/E, and special care for newborns  To review/discuss programmatic experiences and progress in the implementation of newborn care and PPH prevention/management programs in Asia / the Middle East  To review and consider an appropriate programmatic platform for the scale up of PPH reduction and newborn care programs and the initiation or expansion of PE/E reduction programs that can be implemented at multiple levels of the health system  To develop knowledge and greater understanding of selected interventions in maternal and newborn health. Audience:  Ministries of Health from Governments throughout Asia and the Middle East, predominantly from the Maternal Newborn Health Unit  Professional societies of Midwifery, Obstetrics and Pediatrics; Universities and Preservice Education Institutions  Leading Asian Institutions working in maternal and newborn health  Global Health Agencies: WHO; Unicef; UNFPA, World Bank 1|Page
